What is the best way to see Lima in one day?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

To see Lima in one day, begin at the historic center where you can wander through plazas, peak into historic monasteries, and generally get a feel for the 17th and 18th century architecture. Grab a cup of Peruvian blend coffee in one of the city center cafes, and then head over to Parque de la Cultura, the home of Lima's two biggest museums, which has an epic green space that offers a break from the bustle of downtown. Once your batteries are fully recharged, head over to Miraflores and browse the various boutiques and pick up some new locally-made clothing and accessories to add to your wardrobe. Duck into one of the neighborhood's hot new restaurants, or opt for a trendy spot like Lima 27, and start your dinner off with at least one pisco sour, a signature Peruvian drink made with lime, egg white and Angostura bitters. Depending on your mood, you can retire after you dine, or head out to for a night of dancing and drinking at one of the local hot spots such as Sargento Pimienta in Barranco or Ayahuasca.for
