Welcome to Lima, a fusion of old-world charm and contemporary culture. Revisit the past on a trip to the San Francisco Monastery. Eerie underground catacombs hold thousands of neatly arranged skeletons – an ancient graveyard like no other. Catch local transport to the modernity of Miraflores and learn how to mix a Pisco sour, the preferred tipple of Peruvians.
Enjoy an early breakfast before a visit to the archaeological site of Huaca Pucllana. Continue on to the coastal beauty of Chorillos and complete the second half of your journey on two wheels. Breathe in the fresh, sea air and appreciate the ocean views on this guided bike ride. Cycle through the bohemian district of Barranco, a favourite with the artists of Peru. Finish up by riding right into the romance of El Parque del Amor (Love Park) - filled with flowers and sculptures.
