Valparaiso Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Also worth seeing is Pablo Neruda's favourite house "La Sebastiana", a few minutes from downtown in the Cerro Florida hillside. A colorful, sunlit mansion overlooking the water, the house is now a museum that can pleasantly occupy an afternoon.
Valparaiso also is home to a naval museum that documents Chile's extensive history at sea, and most recently a port of call for cruise ships.
The old-seaport atmosphere of Valparaiso is best appreciated by wandering around for a couple of hours in some of the old neighborhoods. The steep and winding alleys give the town a pleasant, intimate feel.
