Lima is a huge city with a population of almost 9 million “Limeños”. As in any big city there are interesting things happening all around. But where to go if you have a free day? Don’t worry, I will give you recommendations on culture, gastronomy, and nature that you can enjoy walking or by bike.
You can hire a tour bike as part of a group or if you are more adventurous you can go by yourself. You will find it by following this route:
If you are in Miraflores, follow the sidewalk along the Pacific Ocean until you reach Barranco. This traditional district was a 19th Century seaside resort for locals who owned the beautiful houses which still adorn the streets today. It is also the birthplace of many artists and you can still feel the bohemian atmosphere. You will find many of the city’s important art galleries such as Lucia de la Puente, Cecilia Gonzalez and 80m².
