Explore Lima by public transport


Explore Lima from a different perspective – by public transportation!

Your guide will meet you at the Setours office in Lima to take the ‘metropolitano’. The modern bus system links different districts in Lima. Get off at the Colmena Station to head to Plaza San Martin featuring the legendary Hotel Bolivar, the Club Nacional, and the Colon Theater. We then wander along Jr. de la Union featuring ‘Casa Courret’ Lima’s oldest photography studio in an eclectic Art Nouveau style, but also Casa Welch once considered as the Limenian Harrods of the 20th century. You will also see one of the country’s finest Baroque buildings, San Pedro Church, built by the Jesuits in 1638. Feel like you are back in time at the bar of Hotel Maury, once one of the most exclusive properties in the last century, a 3* hotel, but still a must-see in the historic center. It is supposed that the legendary Pisco Sour cocktail was invented here.

All this walking is rewarded with a can’t-miss local snack. Enjoy a mouthwatering traditional chicharron sandwich at El Chinito before hopping back on the metropolitano to get back to Miraflores.

This tour is offered for a max. of 8 participants staying at hotels close to one of the metropolitan stations.
