Dominique and Matias also went above and beyond the call of duty in taking great care of my wife and me during the visit. The took us to a few of Santiago's many great restaurants (including Rivoli, which is highly recommended), and made sure we sampled a number of great Chilean wines, including, most notably a particularly fine Carmenere from the von Stiebenthal winery (located to the north of Santiago). On Saturday, they drove us out to Valparaiso on the coast for some sight-seeing and another fine meal, before our plane left late Saturday night.
Santiago is a fun and lively city, full of joggers, cyclists, walkers, shoppers, and diners. Filled with cafes bordering tree-lined streets, museums, many nice parks, and lots of shopping, it's well worth a visit.
