After departing from the pier, you will head to Recoleta Cemetery, the final resting place for Argentina’s wealthy and powerful.

Due to controversy, the body of Argentina’s former first lady wasn’t buried here until more than 20 years after her death.


Next, you will visit Plaza de Mayo, arguably the country’s most famous square. Its name refers to the revolution that began nearby in May 1810 and led to Argentina’s independence from Spain.

Port: Valparaiso (Santiago de Chile), Chile
Destination: South America

Explore the many sides of Chile’s exuberant capital city through its architectural landmarks, historical churches and affluent residential neighborhoods on this tour created for guests transiting Valparaiso on Norwegian Sun.


After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing 2 hour drive inland to Santiago, one of South America’s largest and most engaging cities. Upon arriving in the metropolis, you will see key landmarks such as Plaza de Armas, the original city center.


The graceful Metropolitan Cathedral from 1775 stands at one end of Plaza de Armas and is revered as a national monument. Although the Incas controlled the area when the Spanish founded Santiago in 1541, their dominance didn’t last long. Still the city didn’t flourish for another 200 years.


History is evident throughout the city, which will make for an enlightening visit. For instance, you will see O’Higgins Park, which is named for the commander of the troops that won Chile’s independence from Spain in 1818. Another highlight is the 17th-century San Francisco Church, Santiago’s oldest building. It’s somewhat of a miracle considering that three earthquakes devastated almost everything around the church.


You will also see the majestic presidential palace and several affluent residential neighborhoods. For the best view of the city, you will ride a funicular up San Cristobal Hill. The statue of the Virgin Mary at the top has become the symbol of Santiago.
