Description

Get a personal introduction to Medellín’s colorful neighborhoods, public art, and architecture on a full-day, private tour that includes pickup and drop-off at Medellín hotels, and a cable car ride in Arvi Park. Explore the sculptures of Fernando Botero and the graffiti cool of Comuna 13, then get views of the city from Arvi Park and visit El Pueblito Paisa with a local guide.

Start with pickup at your accommodations in central Medellín, where you’ll meet a private guide with a new, comfortable vehicle. The first stop of the day is downtown Medellín: visit Botero Plaza to see a series of 23 sculptures by the local artist Fernando Botero, and tour the historic center on foot.

Take in Medellín’s gracious plazas, colonial-era churches, and architectural highlights, then pause for lunch at a Paisa restaurant; meals are not included in this tour, but the guide will help you find the perfect place to try local cuisine. Continue to the modernist Santo Domingo Savio Library before boarding a cable car above Arvi Park. This is Medellín at its most scenic, and you’ll have time to walk through the park’s lush forest with views across the city.

Leave the park for the Comuna 13 neighborhood, a once-dangerous area that’s been transformed by community activism and public art, and check out the colorful graffiti and landmark outdoor escalator. Make the final stop of the day at El Pueblito Paisa, a traditional Paisa town reproduced on a Medellín hillside. Visit a tiny church, village museum, and handicraft shops that offer a glimpse into Colombia’s village life at its most nostalgic, then return to central Medellín, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
