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.
Lima is known for sightseeing, historic sites, museums, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Parque de la Reserva, take a stroll through Miraflores, explore the ancient world of Huaca Pucllana, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Lima.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Lima sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 70°F in June, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
