Santiago offers the best of both looking through the downtown blocks you will catch the view of the snowcapped Andean peaks to the east, and a smaller coastal range to the west. However the level of beauty from this view is the smog that is always hanging over the city.
Santiago, my first thought was o crap, another big capital city why did we leave the beach. However do not fear change my dear this city is just waiting for visitors to uncover its hidden gems. And the best way to do that is a free walking tour of the city. “Free Tour Santiago” shows you a good overview of what you need to go and see such as the icecream parlour with more flavors than you can think of, the fish markets for the freshest seafood intown and the insiders knowledge on the local cuisine.
