Easy Colonial Lima & Larco Museum with Lunch
Information not currently available.
Approximately 5 hours
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.
Maximum 15 guests. Tour is designed for guests using a wheelchair and guests with mobility limitations, with a companion to assist. The tour will operate at a slower pace. There is a steep incline at the Larco Museum. The amount of free time spent at the end of the tour will depend on the pace of the group.
