Approximately 4 hours
Discover Lima's legendary lifestyle, from the time of the conquistadors until today.
You'll visit Casa Solariega de Aliaga, perhaps Lima's oldest house, which is inhabited by descendants of its original owner. Jeronimo de Aliaga was one of the first Spanish Conquistadores to arrive in Peru.
Then, proceed to a modern house -- Casa Luna -- located on Santo Toribio Avenue, in the exclusive neighborhood of San Isidro. A Swiss citizen, Wilhelm Helbling, built what has become one of the few town houses preserved in its original condition. It contains the private collection of the Luna Elias-Polo family, collectors of niños manuelitos -- Nativity scenes from Peru and all over the world. The family will greet you and introduce you to their legacy of tradition and art.
You will taste a typical Pisco punch before returning to the ship.
