You will visit 16th century Convent of Santo Domingo, one of the best preserved monasteries in whole of Lima, where you will be able to see the old Lima from its tower. Your visit then continues to the Larco Museum, featuring the finest gold and silver collection from Ancient Peru and the famous "erotic" archaeological collection.
Finally, you will be able to walk around one of Lima's oldest neighborhoods, Pueblo Libre, and try picarones, a Peruvian dessert that originated in the colonial period and is made of squash and sweet potatoes. On the way back to your hotel you will observe a hauca, a pre-Inca site in the middle of the city. Observe the changing of the Guards.
