Bicentennial Walking Tours - City Walk Valparaíso - Chile

One of the biggest draws of the city of Valparaíso is the delightful madness of its design. For this reason, walks around the city will likely be the highlight of the trip. Though some like the idea of letting the city take them where it will, others find the thought of getting lost in Valparaíso’s twists and turns a bit unnerving. Visitors who prefer structured wandering, take heart: you can pick up a very comprehensive reading guide to excellent walking routes through the city, complete with cues for when to look out for a particularly spectacular view.


Fundación Valparaíso

Hector Calvo Cofre 205, Cerro Bellavista

Valparaíso , Chile

City Walk

Getting There

The Fundación Valparaíso has offices in a brightly colored building on Cerro Bellavista. Either take the stairs up from Plaza Ecuador and follow Hector Calvo till you see the building on your left, or take the Espiritu Santo elevator up Cerro Bellavista

Travel Tips:

Most parts of Valparaiso are relatively safe, but wandering unfamiliar streets with an open guidebook and a camera can make you an easy target if you're not careful. If possible, try not to do these walks alone if you are unfamiliar with the city. Visit for additional advice.

Walking tours, as they are self- guided, are free. Inexpensive walking guidebooks can be purchased at the Fundación Valparaíso offices on Cerro Bellavista or accessed for free at their website.

Travel Skills: beginner/easy.

You Need to Bring:

Comfortable walking shoes, a camera, and an adventurous spirit.
