4 Nights: Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu

Essential Peru is a distillation of the country’s richness and diversity. Explore all the highlights from Lima to Machu Picchu.


Arrive in Lima, where you’ll spend the night at the Belmond Miraflores Park. Take some time to explore the city; from museums, galleries and archaeological sites to its colourful markets and cutting-edge restaurants.

A historic, bustling capital of 8 million people, Lima thrives with a revitalized colonial core and surging local dining
scene. The city hugs the coast of the Pacific Ocean and is blessed with pockets of refuge, like seaside Barranco, an artsy barrio and nightlife haunt. Peru’s ancient history lives on in Lima’s archaeological museums and the truly surprising 1,500-year-old, pre-Inca adobe pyramids that rise up from among urban residential towers.
Lima is composed of very distinct neighborhoods. The best area for a stay is Miraflores, an upscale residential district
that is home to the city’s greatest number of restaurants, shops and nightlife options. San Isidro is equal parts business headquarters, luxury apartments overlooking parks, and fine restaurants. The historic heart of the city, Lima Centro, evokes an era when it
was the richest settlement in the Americas. There you’ll find the grand Plaza de Armas, baroque and Renaissance churches (especially Convento de San Francisco), and splendid colonial palaces with long carved- wood balconies. The Larco Museum, home to the world’s largest private collection of pre- Columbian art, delves into Peru’s complex web of ancient civilizations.
