This morning you will fly to Lima where you will be met by your guide to explore the colonial section of Lima, the City of Kings. Visit Lima's principal attractions such as the colonial area's Plaza de Armas with the Government Plaza, the Cathedral of Santa Domingo, San Francisco Convent, and the Archbishop's Palace. A short distance away by car is the Museo Larco Herrera, a private museum situated in an 18th century mansion that was built on an archeological site. The most extensive private collection of pre-Columbian art in Peru is on display. See more than 45,000 ceramic pieces, making it one of the largest ceramic collections in the world, and enjoy a superb variety of fine weavings and textiles.
After free time for lunch, you will meet back up with your guide for the afternoon to explore Lima as you wish. Your guide can give you recommendations on neighborhoods to visit (like Barranco or Miraflores), taverns to taste Pisco Sours (such Queirolo Tavern
in Pueblo Libre), and where to dine in the evening. Lima is known for its fusion cuisine of Andean, Asian, and rainforest ingredients. A traveler favorite is Huaca Pucllana, an adobe pyramid built in 400 AD that served as a ceremonial and administrative center due to its proximity to fertile agricultural land and the bounty of the ocean, a great combination that maintains a place in modern Peruvian cuisine.
