We took funicular El Peral up to the pretty barrio of Conception. Lovely murals and brightly painted houses, steep and narrow streets and ally ways. Lots of restaurants and guest houses. Came down funicular Conception. The funiculars are cheap, beautiful, interesting and save you lots of stairs both up and down. Also if you arrive into Valparaiso by cruise ship... More

If you have little time to explore Valparaiso, this might be the best way to get the most out of it. Take the elevator Concepcion to the Paseo Atkinson and walk around, check the many restaurants and shops, the beautiful architecture and the views of the city from the Mirador. As you get off the elevator make sure you ask... More

A visit with some adrenaline, either going up or down Cerro Concepcion skip the stairs and take the cable car, you'll have quite a experience. Atop the hill, the museum is ok but not worth the money, the alleys around the top are something different and interesting.

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
