Welcome to Peru - Learn to make Pisco Sour
Welcome to Peru!
Upon Arrival, we’ll meet you at Lima Airport and continue together to your first accommodation, Hotel B, a boutique art-hotel in the heart of Barranco district, a protected historic area next to the Pacific Ocean.
After checking -in you will have time for a short briefing with your guide to talk about the itinerary for the next two weeks.
Then you will have some time to relax or wander around the city at your own pace.
Later, we’ll take you to the Larco Herrera Museum. The museum is housed in a beautiful 18th century colonial building and this private collection is the largest collection of Peruvian artefacts in the world. There are amazing examples of pre Columbian artefacts: pottery, ceramics, gold, jewellery and textiles; the museum tells the story of the development of Peru over 5000 years. Everything you see in Peru will make sense after this visit.
On your return to the hotel you have an appointment with the bar manager at the hotel for a cocktail experience. He’ll share with you a little bit of the history of the local spirit, Pisco and you will then prepare your very own Pisco sour!
This is Lima’s only Relais & Chateaux hotel- a Belle Epoque mansion originally built in 1914 as a summer home for a wealthy Limeno family, recently restored to its former glory and housing a private collection of contemporary Latin American and Peruvian artists, adding a unique charm to the interiors. The 20 guest rooms are beautifully decorated with oak floors and modern amenities including plasma TV & Ipod docking station. There is a dining room and bar serving meals, drinks and ‘lonche’ which is a local tradition similar to afternoon tea. The rooftop bar is great for evening cocktails with views over the ocean.
