Medellin City Private Tour
110USD per person
Welcome to Medellín, the second biggest city in Colombia and capital of the department of Antioquia. Our tour shows you the most distinctive landmarks of the capital with the possibility to see the enormous social, cultural and architectonic transformation that this city has experienced over the past twenty years.
Your private guide will pick you up from your hotel and will begin the tour visiting the “La Milla the Oro” which translates to “The Golden Mile”, which is in the financial and hotel sector. Here we will find the Square “Parque de El Poblado” which is the place where the first settlements of the “Villa de San Lorenzo de Ana” took place, to then, become the city of Medellin.
We will, then, continue along the Avenida El Poblado until we reach the centre of the city. After that, we will come to the Square “Parque de San Antonio” where you can see some sculptures by Fernando Botero and visit the San Antonia Church with its imposing dome.
Our next stop will be the “Catedral Metropolitana”, named after the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, a brick building in the neoclassic style.
The cathedral is situated on the square Parque de Bolívar that is named after the liberator Simón Bolívar. The Plaza de las Esculturas (Sculptures’ Square) will be the next stop where you will have some time to explore the twenty-three statues that were donated to the city by Fernando Botero.
In this area, you will also see the gothic styled “Palacio de la Cultura” and the building that houses the Hotel Nutibara- the first luxury hotel of the city, constructed in 1945.
Finally, we head for the south again, this time visiting the old train station ‘Estación de Ferrocarril’ and the Square of Lights, Plaza de las Luces. After a short stop at Parque de los pies Descalzos (Square of the Barefooted) to have a look at the architecture, we will go up the hill of Cerro Nutibara to visit the life-sized replica of a typical village of the region called Pueblito Paisa. There you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city (360 degrees) and the surrounding mountains. Enjoy the last breath of fresh air before the guide brings you back to your hotel.
