Free walking tours in Lima


Best things to do and see in Lima

Lima is the capital of Peru and one of the most surprising cities in the country despite not being the main tourist attraction. The city does not have all the cultural appeal that Nazca or Cusco can offer, but there are a large number of monuments that are worth visiting, as well as its gastronomic offer with a wide variety of Peruvian Creole cuisine. Public transport will allow you to travel from one side of the city to the other, although it does not have a bus fleet of the most modern.

If you are going to visit Lima, we recommend that you do it with a local guide who will help you understand the history and culture of the city under the format of a free tour. There are many tours that will show you the essential places that you must see in your passage through the city such as the Plaza de Armas and the historic center, with the cathedral in the middle of the square and the House of Peruvian Literature in the surroundings. Another place you should know is the Basilica and Convent of San Francisco de Lima, as well as the Parque del Amor overlooking the Pacific or the Barrio de Barranco. Finally, you should not leave without visiting the Surquillo Market.
