Land of the Incas. Start your Peru tour in the coastal capital, Lima, and see the upscale districts Larcomar and Miraflores, visit the colonial Plaza de Armas and Lima Centro, tour the Larco museum’s collection of pre-Columbian art, or try a pisco sour and fresh ceviche in hip Barranco. Outside of Lima, head to the Sacred Valley in the Andean Highlands, the center of the ancient Inca Empire, to explore key archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo, Maras salt mines, and the terraces of Moray. The Incan capital, Cusco is known for its Spanish colonial architecture built over Inca stonework, in particular Santo Domingo Convent, built on top of the Incan Temple of the Sun. From Cusco explore the mystical Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. In the south, stay in the town of Puno to discover the world’s highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca. On the west coast stay in Paracas, and cruise out to the Ballestas Islands, a marine national park, then take a scenic flight over the enigmatic Nazca Lines—only visible from the air.
