In and Around Medellin

Founded by the Spanish in 1616 in the lovely Aburra Valley, Medellin is the country’s second largest city. Following its turbulent years in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, this historic city has emerged as a leading example of South American progress and civic culture - and today’s privately guided city tour will showcase its diverse highlights. Your sightseeing begins as you drive along the bustling Avenida del Rio to visit Plaza de Botero. This inviting city-center space is home to impressive outdoor sculptures by Fernando Botero, the celebrated Colombian artist. Then ride the Metro Cable, enjoying the aerial views of town as you travel to the Santo Domingo neighborhood. A guided tour through the collection of the Spain Library, a striking architectural landmark, offers further insight into Medellin’s remarkable transformation over the decades.

Continue your exploration at Pueblito Paisa, a living museum that recreates a turn-of-the-century Antioquian town, complete with a town square and traditional stone fountain. Your guided sightseeing ends in Parque Lleras, one of Medellin’s most popular commercial districts. Your in-the-know guide is happy to make recommendations if you would like to enjoy some of the area’s boutiques, galleries and cafes on your own. Otherwise, you can return to your hotel with your guide.  Meals B

Excursion to Santa Fe de Antioquia

After breakfast, your private car, driver and guide will be waiting to take you on a full-day excursion to Santa Fe de Antioquia. Surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery, this tranquil Colonial town is the region’s oldest settlement, founded in 1541. When the government moved to Medellin in 1826, this peaceful town was eclipsed by its fast-growing neighbor. The result is a present-day town that looks much like it did nearly 200 years ago. As you explore its narrow streets, your private guide will illuminate the town’s history and offer insight into its distinctive architectural legacy: splendidly preserved whitewashed buildings, many arranged around lovely courtyards and ornamented with beautifully carved windows and doorways. At the Juan del Corral Museum, you’ll learn more about the region’s history and culture. Sit down to a congenial lunch of traditional Antioquian fare before visiting the West Bridge, an impressive 19th-century suspension bridge that spans the fast-rushing Cauca River. Your journey back to Medellin offers a chance to take in more the region’s beautiful mountain landscapes.  Meals B+L
