other than the bridge of sighs which is cute, not that cute. Maybe my tour wasn't that good, but it didn't seem like a major not-to-be missed attraction

We tried every beer and all were well crafted. This beer place has an excellent story and a brewer who knows what he is doing (he is cute too). Call ahead to check for brew tour times. A great way to enjoy an afternoon...then, head right down the road to to the Chocolate Museum.

We enjoyed walking through Barranco and they have a interesting and colorful housing. I think this is a upperclass residents district. They also have Bridge of Sigh with several restaurants around it that I would recommend you to check it out. They also have a great bars nearby that is worth to check out during night time.

Because walking around is cooler, because this is where you can see the artists and craftsmen's work (that's not typical tourist fare) and bring something unique home, because the light in Lima in the afternoon makes every photograph look romantic, because all the houses are unique and maintained beautifully, because you can steal a kiss at sundown along the waterfront,...

Such a beautiful and charming city. I felt very safe and enjoyed my time here. Spent hours roaming the district and enjoyed the vibe and the artistry. Definitely a great place away from the touristy feel of Miraflores.

This is a nice bohemian district in Lima. Just take a walk and visit one of all restaurants. It is beatiful to tak a walk down to the ocean.
