Explore from the southern coast of Peru to the Andes.In addition to frequent internal flights, Peru has an excellent bus network, and its trains can be one of the most impressive ways to navigate the Andes. In the Amazon, of course, the only way to do it is by boat. Don’t spread too much; Traveling is even more exhausting at altitude, and it is better to allow extra time on your itinerary in Peru to enjoy the surrounding towns and markets instead of simply visiting great places like Machu Picchu, the Colca Canyon or the floating islands.Peru is well placed to travel forward, since Lima is a regional flight center, so it can continue to Ecuador and Galapagos. Alternatively, cross the border into Bolivia on Lake Titicaca. See more of our main highlights of Peru on our interactive map, below.

The history of Lima, the capital of Peru, began with its foundation by Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535. The city was established on the valley of the Rímac River in an area populated by the Ichma polity. It became the capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru and site of a Real Audiencia in 1543. In the 17th century, the city prospered as the center of an extensive trade network despite damage from earthquakes and the threat of pirates. However, prosperity came to an end in the 18th century due to an economic downturn and the Bourbon Reforms.

The population of Lima played an ambivalent role in the 1821–1824 Peruvian War of Independence; the city suffered exactions from Royalist and Patriot armies alike. After independence, Lima became the capital of the Republic of Peru. It enjoyed a short period of prosperity in the mid-19th century until the 1879–1883 War of the Pacific when it was occupied and looted by Chilean troops. After the war, the city went through a period of demographic expansion and urban renewal. Population growth accelerated in the 1940s spurred by immigration from the Andean regions of Peru. This gave rise to the proliferation of shanty towns as public services failed to keep up with the city expansion.
