Anchored by its historic center, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, Lima is a lovely place to explore for a night or two before venturing on to Peru’s main attractions. The city has been gentrified and is home to colorful architecture and some cool shops and cafés.

“Lima is a much more interesting city than it is given credit for. My favorite experiences were culinary ones: a food tour of a local market, during which I got to try esoteric fruits, and a stop at a local cevicheria.
Indagare insider Grimanesa Amorós
“Central is a favorite spot of mine in Lima thanks to its owner Virgilio Martínez Véliz, who makes patrons feel the research and development behind each of its plates. Every time I go I feel like I am at a culinary laboratory.”
