Take a taxi to Pablo Neruda's house at the foot of the hill. There is a cafe within the house ---so once you've bought your ticket for a guided tour (in Spanish or English) relax with a coffee, sandwich etc.
The house itself is so interesting: it has been designed to look like a small ship in places and the many rooms are enchanting. There is so much to take in!
A guide is helpful and will give extra information if prompted ---our one seemed to avoid overloading us with too much until we kept asking about this and that.
The over-long shoes are in a studio, behind glass ---but they looked crazy! All very surrealist!
One thing: indoor photos are not allowed.
After the tour you can easily find the funicular railway to take you to the top of the hill ---or you may prefer to stop half-way to visit the zoo.
