4-hour sightseeing tour discovering the wealth of historic and modern attractions found in the Peruvian city of Lima. Explore the town’s colonial and Incan architecture, visit its charming residential neighbourhoods and the scenic cliff-strewn coast.
During your trip through this Peruvian capital, known to some as the “City of Kings,” you'll have a chance to view a range of historic architecture, unique cultural sights and admire its gorgeous coastal landscape.
Start your day with either a morning or afternoon departure, receiving a pickup from your Lima hotel.
The first stop of the day is Lima’s historic city centre, an area once known as the capital of the country’s colonial viceroyalty.
Head next to the “Love Park,” a beautiful green space along the ocean influenced by Barcelona architect Gaudí and featuring a sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín.
Continue to San Isidro, a laid-back residential area of Lima where you’ll have the chance to visit “Huaca Pucllana,” a ceremonial site that pre-dates the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century.
Then head to Lima’s main square, where you’ll see the Municipal and Presidential Palaces, two sprawling structures whose size emphasizes their pre-eminence in the country’s political life.
Proceed next to the Plaza de Armas to view the Lima Cathedral and stop by the tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. You’ll also swing by the Santo Domingo Convent, home to a sprawling monastery complex.
Before finishing your Lima city visit, make additional stops at the Museum of Religious Art and the Church of Santo Domingo, final resting place for the saints San Martin de Porres and Santa Rosa de Lima. At the end of your sightseeing adventure, receive a drop-off back at your Lima hotel.
