Las ciudades Peruanas tienen características exclusivas basadas en su área geográfica y herencia cultural. Desde las estructuras de piedra Inca en Cusco hasta la arquitectura Española en Lima, las ciudades de Perú tienen mucho que ofrecer a los viajeros. Los destinos de ciudad típicamente contienen una amplia gama de lugares para comer, tomar, y comprar, al igual que interesantes atracciones culturales, incluyendo museos, monumentos, y sitios arqueológicos.
As most traveler's first taste of the country, Peru's capital city ticks so many boxes. The city streets are packed with striking colonial architecture, world-renowned restaurants, and cozy boutique hotels. Historic sites and sprawling museums teach us about the country's past, while art galleries and crowded bars provide a taste of modern life and culture.
Lively squares with gardens, fountains, and food vendors are dotted throughout the city, always offering a place of refuge from the busy streets. Not to mention the beautiful boardwalk on the cliffs, where you can soak in the city's prime location on the South Pacific.
In Lima, you can be taking a surf class in the morning and a historic walking tour in the afternoon, followed by a gourmet dinner and drinks to end the day.
Arequipa is one of those relatively off the beaten path places that has all the joys of a big city destination, without the crowds. The Spanish-era architecture here has been intricately restored by the locals and 100-year-old restaurants serve up the Peruvian classics that were created here. Craft breweries and experimental chefs have also found their place in this proud city, adding a modern flair to a strong sense of tradition.
Arequipa is also known as La Ciudad Blanca, the white city, because of its striking white buildings built from the local volcanic rock. Indeed, it is the view of the Misti Volcano that will stay with you long after you've left the city.
