Chile aboard Crystal Serenity

Santiago

sunny 85 °F

After the typical overnight flight from Atlanta to Santiago, we were met by very helpful Crystal Cruises folks and transported to the Grand Hyatt Santiago, a wonderful 5 star hotel in the middle of the city. Our room was ready! After lunch at the hotel, we boarded a bus for the optional City Tour of Santiago that Crystal had available for us.
We drove through the various districts of the city, and stopped at the Churchill Downs of Santiago, The Government Palace, The Cathedral of Santiago, and headed up to a gorgeous park on the top of a hill to get a panoramic view of the city.

After dinner at the top Japanese restaurant in the city (in the hotel) it was off to bed to recover from the always restful sleep on an airplane. Bags out at 8:00am and off for the one hour drive to Valparaiso at 11:30am
