Pablo Neruda's Valparaiso: Free Tour Itinerary
A city that legendary poet Pablo Neruda wrote an ode to is one that is well worth a visit. Explore the "absurd, crazy city" of "dishevelled hills" that he loved so much on this free walking tour of Valparaiso. You'll begin at Neruda's former home, La Sebastiana. Now a museum dedicated to his life and works, it showcases a wide collection of objects that belonged to the award-winning Chilean poet-diplomat.
Your local English-speaking guide will take you on a journey through Neruda's Valparaiso, and throughout your tour you'll truly get a feel for the love he felt for Chile, and for Valparaiso especially, the place where he chose to live for much of his life.
Wander through the picturesque streets of Cerro Florida and Bellavista on the trail of the writer, discovering the secrets and peculiarities of Valparaiso as you take in the beautiful views from the hilly neighbourhoods and admire the street art decorating the walls. You'll soon understand why this city has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The Pablo Neruda tour of Valparaiso will come to an end at the poet's favourite bar. Cheers!
