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.
Get some cultural insight at Huaca Pucllana and Miraflores. Explore hidden gems such as Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay and Lomas de Asias. Change things up with these side-trips from Lima: San Jeronimo de Surco (Toboganes de Songos & Catarata de Huanano). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cordillera de la Viuda, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, join in the after-dark buzz at The Lima Gourmet Company, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Lima trip planner .

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Lima are 22°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
