Your Itinerary

Hotel Innside Lima Miraflores


You will be welcomed at the airport and driven to your hotel in Lima.

Lima, also known as the “City of Kings”, was founded in 1535 by the Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro. Located directly on the Pacific coast, Peru’s capital city is a melting pot of cultures where you will encounter people, flavours, and history from different regions. The bustling metropolis has something for all tastes and ages: indulge in exquisite, internationally-praised cuisine, catch some waves on the coast, visit museums, and stroll around the historical center or the bohemian district of Barranco.

Accommodation: Hotel Innside Lima Miraflores

Day 2: LIMA

Admire the colourful colonial architecture around the “Plaza San Martín” and the main square “Plaza de Armas”, where you can also see the Government Palace, the Cathedral, and the Municipality. From here, visit the San Francisco Monastery and discover its underground maze of tunnels and catacombs.

Head to Lima’s contemporary districts, Miraflores and San Isidro, that combine beautiful parks, such as “El Olivar” and “Parque del Amor”, shopping centres and modern architecture. End your tour at the Larco Museum and appreciate over 45.000 objects. Don’t miss the museum’s famous and unique erotic ceramics collection from the Mochica culture.

As you drive through the winding roads, stop to explore many fascinating ruins, citadels, and agricultural terraces. Some of the Sacred Valley’s favourite attractions include Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Maras, Moray, and the weaving village of Chinchero. 

From here, drive to the small town of Pisac. Well-known amongst locals and tourists, the bazaar-like open market offers a wide selection of Peruvian handicrafts: ceramics, paintings, weavings, and jewelry.

Board the panoramic train and enjoy the stunning Andean views filled with small communities and snow-capped mountains in the Sacred Valley. When you arrive in Aguas Calientes, the small village nestled at the bottom of Machu Picchu, take the shuttle bus up to the ancient citadel for a guided tour of Machu Picchu,  
undoubtedly one of the “must-see” archaeological sites in the world.

“Pago a la tierra” is a mystical Andean ritual that has prevailed for centuries in honour of “Pachamama” (Mother Earth), the sacred goddess and giver of life, and the “Apus” (Spirit of the mountain). The ceremony gives thanks for life, health, family, and for the abundance of crops.

Explore the Raqchi ruins; the best-preserved and only adobe ruins that rest on an Inca rock base.

Continue your journey towards the island of Taquile. Be amazed by the elaborate pre-Inca terraces, unpaved roads where there are no cars, no electricity nor pollution.

LGBTQ in Peru

Same-sex relations in Peru have been decriminalised since 1991 and the country is home to two of the most LGBTQ friendly cities in South America, namely Lima and Cusco. While same-sex activity has been legalised and discrimination against LGBTQ people banned, it is still a broadly conservative Catholic country, and same-sex marriage is not recognised.

Peru is well known for its friendly population and LGBTQ visitors should not be discouraged from visiting, however, we recommend practising discretion when out and about.
