Lima

Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lima: Playa Santa Maria del Mar (in Santa Maria Del Mar), El Canon de Austisha (in Huarochiri) and Complejo Arqueologico de Rupac (in Huaral). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museo Larco, don't miss a visit to Miraflores, stroll around Circuito Magico Del Agua, and take a stroll through Barranco.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Lima sightseeing planning website .

Tel Aviv, Israel to Lima is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Israel Standard Time (IST) to Peru Time (PET), which is usually a -7 hour difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Tel Aviv in January: high temperatures in Lima hover around 31°C and lows are around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Cusco.

Capital of the Inca Empire for three centuries, World Heritage-listed Cusco is now a major tourist destination, drawing nearly 2 million annual tourists with its well-preserved colonial architecture and proximity to Machu Picchu.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cusco: Archaeological Park Ollantaytambo (in Ollantaytambo), Maras (Salinas de Maras & Moray) and Urubamba (Hacienda del Chalan & Cerveceria Willkamayu). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Sacsayhuaman, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Precolombino, get engrossed in the history at Museo Inka, and steep yourself in history at Sacred Valley of the Incas.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Cusco vacation planner.

Getting from Lima to Cusco by flight takes about 2 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. When traveling from Lima in January, plan for slightly colder days and cooler nights in Cusco: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 9°C at night.
