Even if you haven't heard of Pablo Neruda, go to this house (one of 3 that he had in Chile). It is a wonderful glimpse into the poet and collector. It's located in a really funky neighbor hood, and a short walk to the Teleferico.

After seeing the film "Neruda" recently a visit to his house was fascinating, especially the resemblance to the inside of a ship. Unfortunately photography isn't allowed inside. Why do so many places in South America have this policy? There are innumerable photos available on the...More

No, no parking. Taxi or Uber is the best option.

Santiago is at least 2 hours by car from Valpariso. It can be done if you are in a time crunch.. Ask your Santiago hotel if they can arrange a car for you.
