After breakfast, a free day or an optional full city tour of modern and colonial Lima, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991. A tour with a bilingual guide on an air-conditioned bus.

A full-day travel to Urubamba, the Inca Sacred Valley. Visit the village of Pisac, founded during the Colonial era. The Indians trade their goods on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and craftsmen from all over the region sell their woven alpaca wool blankets and ponchos, engraved gourds, antique reproductions, and jewelry. It is also the meeting point on Sundays for the local mayors of the city, dressed in traditional costumes, to attend the morning mass.

This is one of the few areas that the Spanish did not pillage and conquer. Since they have been unable to locate it. High up on the lofty mountain in the lush cloud forest, the perfect craftsmanship of the stonework, the winding cobblestone streets and magnificent temples, all surrounded by a dramatic terraced mountain landscape with lush green cover, will take you back to the time of the Incas.
