Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Lima, Peru your home away from home

Things to Do in Lima, Peru

Exploring the city sights is the main activity for most people enjoying a holiday rental in Lima. Take a guided tour in English of some of the main sights to get the most out of the city’s amazing history and culture. Shopping is a pleasure along the busy streets with bargains to be had in leather goods and woollen items such as scarves and sweaters. Artists display their paintings along the pavement, which make lovely souvenirs. Eating out in Lima is a real delight for food lovers.

The main square in Lima is the Plaza de Armas which is centred around a huge 17th century bronze fountain. On each side of the plaza are the city’s most impressive buildings: The splendid baroque Governor’s Palace with uniformed guards; the 1564 Cathedral and adjoining Archbishop’s Palace which still stands after many earthquakes; the Town Hall and the Club de la Union where politicians and professionals gather to dine are all worth a photograph. A guided tour is the best way to appreciate the fine frescoes and the extensive catacombs in the Iglesia de San Francisco, which has some gruesome skeletal remains.

It's a well-appointed, spacious apartment and Jeff was supremely helpful in making sure everything was as we asked as well as recommending places to visit. The roof terrace has an incredible panoramic view of Lima from which you can enjoy stunning sunsets over the ocean. It's a few minutes' walk to the nearest avenue of stores, and only 30 mins to the ocean-front, Larcomar mall with its top stores and ocean-view restaurants. I'd chose a place like this to stay over a hotel any time.
