Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Santiago is known for museums, shopping, parks, nature, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at San Cristóbal Hill, take a stroll through Barrio Bellavista, stop by Costanera Center, and admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).

To find reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Santiago road trip planning site .

Istanbul, Turkey to Santiago is an approximately 22.5-hour combination of shuttle and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 7 hours traveling from Istanbul to Santiago. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can travel to Copiapo.

Copiapo ©
Surrounded by the Atacama Desert, Copiapo receives very little rainfall and owes its existence to the mining industry.
Explore Copiapo's surroundings by going to Caldera (Iglesia de San Vicente de Paul & Casa Tornini Museo - Centro Cultural). There's much more to do: explore the fascinating landscape at Desierto Florido, see the interesting displays at Museo Mineralogico, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia San Francisco, and cool off at Parque Alliyay.
