    The hilltop artists' village of Altos de Chavón reveals its unique beauty on this tour of its architectural landmarks and esteemed archaeological museum.

    Departing from the pier you will first enjoy a brief, but immensely scenic drive up to the lovely village of Altos de Chavón, which perches atop a plateau overlooking the enchanting Chavón River. While it may look like a 16th century Mediterranean village, Altos de Chavón was nothing more than a brilliant idea until development began in 1976.

    It's an amazing re-creation, as you will discover walking the narrow cobbled streets and alleyways of this artists' village. At its center lies the impressive St. Stanislaus Church, named for Poland's patron saint as a tribute to Pope John Paul II, who visited the capital of Santo Domingo in 1979. You'll also see a Roman-style outdoor amphitheater with tiered stone seating for 5,000, another fantastic re-creation that makes Altos de Chavón appear so ancient and historic. International superstars such as Frank Sinatra, Julio Iglesias and Sting have all performed here. However, not everything is a reproduction. Inside the Regional Museum of Archaeology, you'll find thousands of pre-Columbian artifacts from the Dominican Republic's indigenous tribes.

    After your guided overview of the village, enjoy free time to explore on your own, among fine boutiques, galleries and craft shops. Rejoining your coach, you'll return to the pier, passing through the luxurious resort of Casa de Campo, a haven for the rich and famous.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate walking, plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. There are cobblestone streets to negotiate in Altos de Chavón. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability as guests should be able to walk without assistance. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
