With more than eight million people, Lima is one of largest cities in South America. If you spend some time here, it can become as pleasant as any city on the continent. It is a city of poets, and artists, and interior designers. It is a city of diversity, of oddities, wealth, and poverty. Just when you think you know Lima, it totally surprises you. The city ranges from a cutting-edge, ocean-view shopping center to ancient sites that encompass entire city blocks. It could easily be called the gastronomic capital of South America. Many consider Peruvian food the last great ethnic cuisine that has yet to be discovered. The restaurant scene ranges from comedors, where a several-course meal may cost a little more than a dollar, to high-priced luxury restaurants that can rival those of New York or Paris. It is a major cultural center, with the best museums in the country, fine dining, ancient ruins, and is home to numerous literary figures, artists, and intellectuals. Toss in a booming nightlife, fine dining, numerous adventure sports, and 60 miles of white sand beaches and you have one of the most dynamic cities on the planet. This guide tells you all about the history and culture of Peru, how to get there and how to get around, plus the general travel information you need. Then it zeros in on the capital and its surrounding, detailing all the places to stay and eat, the things to see and do, the fiestas, historic sites, museums, markets - everything you need to know. Filled with maps and photos.
