Our adventure begins at 9:30 in Kennedy Park, our meeting point is at the entrance of the Kenedy Park Cathedral in Miraflores
LIMA'S TOURISTIC CENTER
Once all together, we will leave for the Metropolitano station (the most efficient public transport in Peru). After 25mins in the bus, we will arrive at the historical center of Lima. We will start the tour in the tourist area of Lima - the center. This region is beautiful, full of history and definitely worth a visit. From Plaza San Martin we will go down to Plaza de Armas.
We keep moving into the Monastery of San Francisco where we will visit the catacombs.
LIMA'S UNTOURISTIC CENTER
Once in the center of Lima, we get away from the beaten path, to see how Peruvians really live their daily lives.
We will visit the central market of Lima, an amazing opportunity for photography. Have lunch in Lima's Chinatown, in a Chifa restaurant, a fusion of Chinese and Peruvian food. The Chinese quarter established in Lima shortly after the arrival in 1849 of Chinese indentured laborers.
After lunch, we will travel in the Metropolitano, and in a local Combi bus, to reach Barranco's bohemian streets. The district is considered to be the city's most romantic and bohemian, being the home and working place of many of Peru's leading artists, musicians, designers and photographers. Walking through those quiet and beautiful streets is the best way to discover this district.
CHORRILLOS FISHING HARBOUR
After lunch, we will travel in the Metropolitano, and in a local Combi bus, to reach the Fishing Harbour of Chorrillos. Fishermen return from the sea around 3 pm every day with fresh fish. Lima is known for its diverse culinary culture, but even more for the traditional Ceviche. What better place than this local harbor to find out how Limeñan people do business and handle their fish?
EL MORRO SOLAR DE CHORRILLOS
We will first go around that little mountain located south of Lima. Discovering another less visited place in Lima. El Mirador de la Cruz, El Salto Del Fraile... From there we will drive up that hill to be able to see Lima from a privileged point of view.
