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 Nor Yauyos-Cochas Landscape Reserve and Palomino. Popular historic sites such as Huaca Pucllana and Peruvian Soul are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lima: Balneario La Punta (in Callao) and El Silencio (in Punta Hermosa). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco, identify plant and animal life at Pantanos de Villa, steep yourself in history at Centro Historico de Lima, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro).

For other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Lima road trip site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
