Lima, much more than a layover in your trip to Peru

Lima, much more than a layover in your trip to Peru

Visiting Peru is usually a synonymous with knowing the provinces in the country’s interior, and passing through Lima is just a layover for a couple of hours. Many of the tourists who have this idea about the Peruvian capital miss the wonderful experience this cosmopolitan city can offer.

Although places to visit in Lima are endless, we recommend you some of our favorites that you can know in just two days. Maybe you encourage yourself to extend your layover in the city, the next time you pass through there.

Enjoy a delicious traditional breakfast: bread with chicharron.

They say that skipping breakfast is prohibited, and leaving Lima without starting your day eating a bread with chicharron, too. Once you have had breakfast, like an authentic citizen of Lima, bread with chicharron of pig, onions and sweet potato, you will have recharged energies for starting your tour.

The Historical Center of Lima will simply delight you with its architecture. You can recognize the influence of different parts of the world in every corner, street and balcony. Go for a walk from the Plaza de Armas to Plaza San Martin, imagine how life must have been in colonial times and encourage yourself to enter to some of the old houses that are open to the public.
