We hit the highway towards Valparaíso, but, it was getting late so we decided to stop by the Palacio Viña Mar for lunch and some good wine. I made a review about it, so I won’t say much here. I ordered a Risotto with sea food that was just wonderful. I also had a drink of Pisco Sour. I liked it! The dessert was also delicious. After being full of great food and great wine, we resumed the way to Valparaíso.
I definitively loved Valparaíso! It looks a lot more thrashed and poor than Santiago, but it just got something to it that makes it special. I think it’s definitively all those bright and colorful colored houses built on top of the hills! The city is full of hostels, museums and cafes, it just lovely! We went on top of a hill using a XIX century elevator, a bit scary! Then from there we could just admire the city from some of its best angles! Colors, colors, colors, that is what Valparaíso is all about! We could also take some pictures from Viña del mar from there.
Viña was shockingly different! I was like crossing from Tijuana to San Diego (lol). It’s very classy, modern, clean and nice city with lots of luxurious accommodations and a nice casino. Unfortunately it was already dark when we got there, but I hope to come back on a future trip!
