If you want to explore Valparaiso, you must go to the safe and beautiful Cerro Concepcion. It's mostly a tourist place, but with great street art, restaurants and views. Very close to the Port and easy to get there by Ascersor Concepcion, only walking a few blocks from 'Puerto' metro station. The views are amazing, better go on a sunny... More

Valparaiso is a complex and culturally rich city. It mixes the typical life of seaport cities with art, culture, great food and beautiful sights. The cerro Concepcion is probably one of the most representative expression of this complexity. Ascend using the historical elevators, have a coffee in some small coffee shop, watch the bay of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar... More

Beautiful just to walk around and take in the wonderful streetart. At night go to Cumming street for good, cheap bars and AMAZING live music. We went to La Viaje and they had 2 for one terremottos for 2500 pesos and a great live salsa band.

Take the time, walk around, enjoy the street art! At the bottom, in one of the main streets, there is an empanada place, doing 60 different empanadas.

Full disclosure: our son was living in Valparaiso for the year, so when we visited, we had the best possible tour guide (except for the Tours for Tips guide, but I digress). That said, Cerro Concepcion was cool on so many levels (pun intended). You can read other reviews, that do a great job of describing the place. I can... More

This was included in our trip from Santiago, the tour lasted the whole day and we experience this place including the walks in those grafitti full streets, we mingled with locals and took the little cable car which took us down the hill to the plaza, recommend ed to visit when here.

Cerro Concepción is one of the prettiest places I have ever been, but it is also very quirky. The rickety old ascensor takes you up the hill into lots of interweaving, narrow streets splattered with graffiti, murals and colour everywhere you go. There are lovely restaurants with terraces to sit out on as well as lots of hotels and hostels.... More

The flat part of Valparaiso around the docks etc. has little to offer, but take off one of those inconspicuous narrow allleys, grab a 100 yr-old funicular for a 40 seconds ride ( a few pesos) and you emerge in a new multicoloured world. Most travel books, the tourist office etc. have walking tours through this colourful wonderland. Everything is... More
