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.
Escape the urban bustle at Toboganes de Songos and Lomas de Asias. Site Museum and Archaeological Sanctuary of Pachacamac and Cathedral of Lima are good opportunities to explore the local culture. When in Lima, make a side trip to see Wetlands of Ventanilla in Callao, approximately 52 minutes away. Spend the 17th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
