HD Lima - City of the Kings with the Larco Museum

In the morning, your private tour guide and driver will take you for a tour of Lima, ‘The City of the Kings´, where you will enjoy seeing the best of both colonial and modern Lima. We will take you to the San Martin Plaza, where you will walk through the busy and fascinating pedestrian-only Jirón de la Union, Union Street, which leads to the Plaza de Armas, the main plaza. This street was constructed in 1535 and still retains its old charm with a number of shops and restaurants set in a mixture of old and new buildings. We will then arrive at the Plaza de Armas, a beautiful square surrounded by palaces, before heading to the World Heritage Listed Monastery of San Francisco. This monastery is renowned for its architecture, a stunning 17th Century example of Spanish Baroque, and its convent library that possesses approximately 25,000 important antique texts. Hidden underneath the monastery, are the Catacombs, Lima´s first cemetery, where you will witness the remains of some 70,000 burials by exploring through narrow passages and looking down into deep pits that are lined with mysterious bones and skulls. After visiting the colonial part of Lima, we take you to the Larco Museum, where you will see one of the world’s largest collections of Peruvian pre-Columbian art. Within this museum, you will be able to see its well-known collection of pre-Columbian erotic pottery. The Larco Museum is one of Lima’s must-see attractions. After your cultural Lima tour, you have the chance to enjoy some exquisite Peruvian cuisine in a good restaurant. After lunch, you return to your hotel and have the rest of the day to spend at your leisure.
