Lima has enough activities to entertain the most determined sightseer. A tentative itinerary may begin with a morning stroll to the quiet refuge of one of Limaâ€™s many plazas or parks surrounded by landmark buildings and beautiful colonial architecture. Wander into a church or monastery that highlights the dominating role of religion throughout Peruâ€™s history. Be sure to visit a few of the fascinating museums followed by a traipse through various Inca ruins that are set against Limaâ€™s modern backdrop. Callao is a pleasant day trip from the city.
Several websites list special exhibits and happenings in the city: Siente Mag (www.sientemag.com), Lima en Escena (www.limaenescena.com), Peru This Week (www.peruthisweek.com) and Voces â€“ Revista Cultural de Lima (www.vocesperu.com). Literary events are covered by Red Literaria Peruana (www.literatura.pe) and Casa de la Literatura Peruana (www.casadelaliteratura.gob.pe).
