Is your trip to Peru near? Take note that we will then organize your city tour in Lima in just 2 days.
Start your tour very early in a beautiful place of Miraflores and Barranco: The boardwalk, where you can see the peaceful sea, walk through large parks and even paragliding or hangliding. For lunch you can go to Kennedy Park, since in its surroundings you will find several restaurants offering national and international cuisine.
After lunch, we recommend you to walk through the park and then go to the bohemian district of Barranco. Already in Barranco, take a tour to the Bridge of sighs and the descent of baths. In these 2 places you can walk quietly, take photos with graffiti and see for free the artistic presentations that are in the Plaza de Barranco (5 minutes from the bridge of sighs).
Finally, for a delicious dinner and to watch the sunset from a privileged place, we recommend going to Larcomar, a shopping center in Miraflores where you will find from restaurants to fun games.
Depart from the hostel to the historic center of Lima, where you can see more than 50 colonial buildings and monuments. Among the most representative and found in the main square are: the Government Palace, the Cathedral of Lima and the Municipality of Lima.
Then you can cross the “Jiron de la Union” where you apreciate our popular culture and you can also buy souvenirs, you can lunch here. At the end of your tour of the Jirón, you will find yourself in Plaza San Martin, which is named because it has a monument of Don José de San Martín dating from 1921.
To finish this second day discovering Lima, we suggest you visit San Francisco church, where you will find the largest sample of colonial religious art in America and the underground crypts known as Catacombs.
