Peru Highlights

8 Day Package from Lima to Lima

Abundance…yep, we all want it. While Monograms can’t help you win the lottery, we can help you find “the land of abundance,” which is how the Quechua Indians refer to Peru. And let’s be honest, when it comes to archaeological treasures, few places compare to Peru! So let Monograms make it easy for you to travel to Peru on this 8-day vacation. We’ve arranged hotel reservations for you, buffet breakfast daily plus a few other meals, sightseeing, and transportation between cities. Plus, to help you feel comfortable in this foreign land, you’ll have access to a Local Host® in each city, a “friend” who will answer your questions, offer suggestions, and help your vacation run smoothly.

On your first day in Lima, your first Local Host will meet you at your hotel and give you materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after an included breakfast, your guided sightseeing with a local expert features the historic city center and San Francisco Monastery with its underground catacombs—not to mention insider stories to make the experience really come alive. Then you’re off to Cusco, high in the Andes. In Cusco, among many sights, your included sightseeing tour features the Santo Domingo Monastery, an important temple devoted to the sun, and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, built in the early 12th century with some stones weighing more than 350 tons—built without the use of modern technology and machinery! Cusco offers some fantastic gastronomic delights, so be sure to ask your Cusco Local Host for recommendations. In the Sacred Valley, visit the market town of Pisac, where you can find local wares at bargain prices, and Ollantaytambo, a great example of Inca town planning and with some of the finest examples of Inca masonry.

No trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu, built in 1450 at the height of the Inca Empire and without a doubt one of the most magnificent settings in South America. You’ll take a train to Machu Picchu, receive an included tour, and if you desire, you’ll have the opportunity to see the sunrise over Machu Picchu and hike to the Sun Gate, the ancient entrance used by the Incas, with your second included entrance to the ruins. Plus, you’ll have access to a Local Host in Machu Picchu—someone who can tell you the history and the culture like no one else.

You’d think the opportunity to have three Local Hosts to assist you would be enough for Monograms. But we’ve taken it one step further by including transportation, sightseeing, and breakfasts. With Monograms, you’ll get to experience the “land of abundance” as it was meant to be experienced!

Meet a Local Host® in Lima, Peru

Hello my name is Julio Castro and for many years I worked in the Sales Department of a very large International Corporation. There it was always emphasized that we were not supposed to create satisfied customers because that was not enough. What we were required to do was to produce ONLY delighted customers and that has been my personal philosophy ever since. I am eager to show the many wondrous and beautiful features of Lima, Peru with our guests.

Magic Water Circuit

Pedro de Osma Museum

This museum, located in Barranco, has one of the best painting collections in Peru with pieces dating back to the 16th century. The paintings from well-known artists are on linen cloth, metal, wood, glass and leather. Antique pieces of furniture, silver, sculptures and textiles are also part of the collection. The base for the Museum Pedro de Osma came from the personal collection formed by Don Pedro de Osma Gildemeister between 1936 and 1967. He had remarkable knowledge of the Peruvian art and gradually gathered various exquisite objects dating from the 16th to the 19th century. All the pieces were kept in the large family house in Barranco, arranged in a tight exhibition (style of the European palace museums in the 19th century).

Real Felipe fortress

The fortress was built in 1747 to protect the port from pirates and was the last Spanish bastion during the independence of Peru. Today, it houses an interesting military museum.

Bodega and Quadra Museum

This museum is located in downtown Lima and exhibits pieces of the culture of Lima, Inca and Chancay that took place during the colonial and republican period.

Rafael Larco Herrera Museum

T’anta

For a bite on the run, this gourmet market is the place to go. Grab a salad or sandwich to go, or if you have the time, linger over the passion fruit tart in the café.

Canta Rana

Peru is famous for its ceviche—a dish of seafood marinated in citrus juices and served with roasted corn and onions. Canta Rana serves some of the best in Lima.

Killari

For handicrafts made in Peru, this shop in Miraflores offers a unique collection of weavings, ceramics, and silver.

La Posada del Mirador

Peru’s most famous cocktail is the Pisco Sour, made from Pisco, a regional grape brandy. You can enjoy one on the garden patio of this watering hole in the Barranco neighborhood. Occupying an old house overlooking the ocean, the setting is as great as the drink.

Barrio Chino

This neighborhood in Lima holds South America’s largest Chinese community. Visit any number of the neighborhood’s chifas for Chinese cuisine with a Peruvian twist.

Caballero de Fina Estampa

You can’t visit Lima without seeing at least one peña—a show at a criollo music club with inspiring vocal and dance performances. This criollo club, named after a famous Peruvian song, offers a terrific show.

Miraflores Jogging Path

It’s difficult to maintain your exercise routine on vacation. It’s even more difficult in a traffic-heavy city like Lima. The biking and jogging paths along the malecón in Miraflores offer a great way to get some exercise and see the city at the same time.

Enjoy the National Museum, where impressive halls exhibit the most important aspects in the development of ancient Peru. Exhibits include replicas of archaeological sites, engravings and dioramas, and an extensive collection of ancient material.

Pachacamac Pilgrimage Center

Built around 700 AD as a temple for the worship of the sun god Pachacamac, it housed an oracle that is believed to be one of the main pilgrimage centers in pre-Columbian Peru and on a par with Cuzco. Pilgrims flocked here from far away to worship Pachacamac, who was believed to be the creator of the world and its creatures. The site includes palaces, plazas, and temples that have been painstakingly restored. The on-site museum has a collection of local relics.

Barranco

Every major city has its bohemian district—where all the artists and musicians hang out—and for Lima, this district is Barranco. The advantage of Barranco is that it combines all this with being a fashionable beach resort too. Originally a playground and place to spend the summer for the old aristocracy of Lima, the district is a cluster of houses, shops, and restaurants in and around a ravine near a cliff overlooking the beach. In Barranco, it is relatively easy to find a place to sip a coffee or a beer while enjoying a fine view over the ocean.

Islas Palomino

Sail to the islands of Callao. First see the yachts, warships, and merchant ships at anchor in Callao Bay. Then sail over "El Camotal" into the open sea, and observe sunken and stranded ships. Pass the Isle of San Lorenzo—with its long history going back to pre-Columbian times. There are fishing boats at work and many colonies of sea birds and Humboldt penguins. The farthest point on the trip is Palomino Island, home to a large number of seals and sea lions. In a wetsuit, you can swim among them, as they have no predators—it is an unforgettable and emotional moment. Then start your voyage back through impressively shaped islets and rocks.

Hacienda Mamacona

No more than 25 km to the south of Lima is a little-known hacienda where you can experience nature on the coast, ancestral customs, links with the Inca past, and the incomparable Peruvian paso horse. (Only on Tuesdays.)

Astrid Y Gaston

This warm and chic modern, colonial dining room is hidden discreetly on a busy side street leading to Parque Central in the Miraflores district. The restaurant has high, white-peaked ceilings and orange walls decorated with colorful modern art—the products of local art students. At the back is an open kitchen, where one of the owners, Gastón, can be seen cooking with his staff. The place is sophisticated but low-key—a description that could fit most of its clients, who all seem to be regulars. The menu might be called "criollo-Mediterranean" with a light Peruvian touch.

A tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas on a sunny day is enough to make you relax and enjoy this peace and harmony, in which its people live every day. I really admire this city and its cultural identity that amazes everyone who visits our archaeological sites.

Artesanías Mendivil

There are many handicraft shops in Cuzco. This one is known internationally for its saint figures with elongated necks.

Museum of Popular Art

Inka Museum

Raised on Inca foundations by Admiral Aldrete Maldonado in the early-17th century, this home has a magnificent baroque doorway emblazoned with the admiral’s coat of arms, a large arched patio, and salons with coffered ceilings.

Tipon and Piquillacta

Tipon is important for its excellent hydraulic engineering work and it is composed by an agricultural group of platforms with long steps and ducts elaborated in limestone. This impressive system of irrigation is still used in agriculture. Some of the fountains in Tipon must have ceremonial purposes. Tipon is considered an Inca temple dedicated to the water cult.

Piquillacta is a national archaeological park with landscapes of great interest. This archaeological Pre-Inca citadel was one of the most spectacular regional centers of the Wari culture. The constructions of Piquillacta are composed by more than 700 structures displayed in a harmonious and symmetric way, with different buildings that should have sheltered a population of about ten thousand people.

A stroll through and you’ll be amazed at how the Incas built this maze of hand-made channels that divert saltwater springs into the exposure of the sun.
