Perfect day in Peru!

You will probably get to Peru thinking that you will learn everything about the Inca Culture travelling to Cusco and Machu Picchu, but if you don´t get a good brief about all precolumbian cultures at Museo Larco, you will never learn that incas lived only 200 hundred years before the Spanish came to Peru.
Peru is so much more! For me Larco Museum was an eyeopener and a must see experience in Lima. Located in a stunning colonial house on top of a precolumbian pyramid, sorrounded by one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen, the collection held inside is just impressive.
It´s all labeled in english and you can get really good guided tours for around $6 at the door. You should not miss it!
