hello, we have lima downtown where you can see the cathedral, santo domingo church with catacombs and history lima since time of spains.

Also you can visit antropology and history museum in pueblo libre, you can see about pre incas and inca cultures. Also you can visit huaca pucllana in miraflores and huaca pachacamac in lurin(30 minutes from lima). You can see all small pre inca cities.

You have to eat cebiche, peruvian food and drink pisco sour. At night you can go barranco district and from thursday to saturday watch a beautifull show in Brisas del Titicaca, dances from all peru.

Cities near lima are nazca lines, paracas reserves and the huacachina in Ica. All these cities are 5-6 hours from lima. Also trujillo city is about 8 hours from lima by bus and visit beaches, huaca of sun and moon and moche and chimu culture(pre-inca cultures).

If you need more information you can get some guides from www.peru.info/peru.asp
