Transfer from the pier to downtown Lima -- the City of the Kings and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Relax and enjoy a small-group panoramic drive through Lima's historical city center. You'll appreciate the overview of the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), Government Palace and City Hall, all of which boast a combination of several architectural styles from late Gothic to Renaissance, Baroque and Plateresque.

You'll visit the Larco Herrera Museum, housed in an 18th-century colonial mansion and holding the most extensive collection of pre-Columbian art in Peru. It also contains fine pieces of textile work -- one example features a world-record-breaking 398 threads per inch. Don't miss the collection of tools the ancient Peruvians used to produce metals, huaco ceramics and gold and silver pieces with semi-precious stones.

Lunch is served at the museum restaurant. Afterwards, enjoy some free time for shopping before you transfer back to the pier.
