Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
When in Lima, make a side trip to see El Canon de Austisha in Huarochiri, approximately 1h 55 min away. The adventure continues: ponder the design of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), don't miss a visit to Circuito Magico Del Agua, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco, and take a leisurely stroll along Miraflores Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Ch├ívez International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
