Explore Lima

Plaza Mayor is the center of Old Lima and was previously known to the conquistadores as the Plaza de Armas. The Palacio de Gobierno, completely renovated in 1938, was (local legend) Pizarro’s house and where he was assassinated in 1541. Nearby is the Renaissance-style Cathedral, rebuilt several times after falling victim to natural disasters, which houses the impressive Museum of Religious Art. Adjacent is the Archbishop’s Palace, while nearby is the 16th century church and monastery of Santo Domingo, containing the tombs of Santa Rosa de Lima and San Martin de Porres.

Other attractions of note around the city are the Casa de Osambela, the Museo de Arte, the Museo Nacional de Antropología y Arquelogía, the Museo de La Inquisición, several magnificent colonial mansions, the Jesuit Church of San Pedro, the famous catacombs of the Church of San Francisco, and the spectacular 18th century Torre Tagle Palace.

As the capital city of Peru, Lima abounds in first-class accommodation and excellent restaurants. For sumptuous cuisine, charming cafes and exciting nightlife, head to the affluent suburb of Miraflores.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
