Information not currently available.
Approximately 6½ Hours
Join a select group of a dozen guests for an intriguing and eclectic journey down the narrow streets of Valparaíso. For centuries, artists of all kinds have been inspired by the city's memorable architecture, colorful houses and unusual buildings perched upon the 42 hills surrounding the bay.
Hundreds of poets, painters, musicians, and sculptors are drawn to this curious city and have made Valparaíso their muse, bringing a wealth of culture and attention to this sun-soaked spot.
Today you will meet three local artists who have opened the doors to their private homes or studios for this intimate experience. See their work and enjoy the passion they impart as they explain the different stages involved, providing valuable background narrative.
During each of the three 45-minute visits, feel free to engage in direct conversation with the artists and experience the porteño ambience that motivates their work. Each home or studio is selected for its exceptional location or structure, and as a reflection of the artists' personality and spirit. You'll come away with a sense of Valparaíso as seen through the eyes of an artist, and perhaps even feel inspired yourself…
Unwind and reflect over lunch on the terrace of a local restaurant, with an enchanting view of the bay.
Return to San Antonio and the ship.
The guide will interpret for the artist if language is a barrier.
