DAY 2 - LIMA - CITY TOUR & DINNER

Breakfast at the hotel. Explore Lima´s old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site packed with fascinating historic buildings. Start with a scenic tour in the colonial downtown, which originates and spreads out from the Main Square, where you can appreciate the grandiose architecture of the Spanish Empire. Be amazed by Lima´s Cathedral, built during the 16th century and which took over 80 years to complete. Then visit the Casa Aliaga, a colonial mansion granted in 1535 by chief conquistador Francisco Pizarro to Jerónimo de Aliaga, one of his captains. This is the only house from that time that is still owned by the same family through the centuries. Continue to the Larco Museum, located in the traditional Pueblo Libre district, which is housed in a beautifully restored vice regal mansion built on a pre-Columbian pyramid from the VII century. The museum boasts the most complete pre-Hispanic collection of gold and silver objects, as well as pieces of erotic art.

At night, you are transferred from your hotel to the restaurant where you have dinner. The restaurant is located in an incomparable setting, inside the complex of an adobe pyramid built by the original inhabitants of Lima more than 1500 years ago; it is one of the biggest surprises in the city at dinner time. The restaurant is beautifully designed in a rustic colonial style; you can choose to dine inside or outside, but the best place is undoubtedly the covered terraces. The menu is creative, with spicy touches of the classic Peruvian creole cuisine. After dinner, return to your hotel.
