view from the Malecon in Miraflores, Peru
Totally recommended. Do not forget to book!
The center of Lima is colonial style, with well-kept old constructions. It is worth visiting the “Basilica of San Francisco” with its catacombs full of bones and skulls. And after such an experience not suitable for those suffering from claustrophobia, you can walk nearby and get lunch at “Tanta” (don´t forget to order the “Lomo Saltado”, a Peruvian speciality).
The night continued visiting some bars. We walked through Miraflores, Kennedy Park and Barranco, where you can find more modern bars. It was a great night and we enjoyed the good weather. (Lima is cloudy a lot, so If you have a sunny day be grateful.)
Finally, we booked into a very charming place visited by great chefs and personalities: “Restaurante Sonia”. A peculiar place, with first-class gastronomy. I recommend going by taxi and checking the map beforehand as even many taxi drivers do not know the place, located in the area of Chorrillos.
A city that we fully recommend if you want to eat well and drink lots of Peruvian Pisco Sour. I want to come back soon!
