The word Peru evokes inevitably and almost immediately images of Machu Picchu and the Empire founded by the Incas. Through its roads it is possible to see the impressive archaeological heritage of ancient civilizations, which testify art, customs, rites and development. Diversity is another main theme in Peru. It is a melting pot where different customs, beliefs and views blend, resulting in years of invaluable traditions, history and gastronomy. Savor the world-renown cuisine in Lima, and then climb the Andes to reach breath taking archaeological sites. You will soon realize the country seems to be a land of contradiction and home of extremes. Let Peru surprise you!
