“two ways to see, Arequipa city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We were wlaking by the Arequipa's main square trying to decide how to know Arequipa (downtown) by our own, suddenly we see a transport service, a girl told us that we can make a quick tour in this bus for the principal places in Arequipa, for a few dollars so we decide to take the tour and after this we can go for our own to some places that cature our interest the next day.
Was a good experience because we visit local palces like molino de sabandia, Founder's maison yanaguara, outlet incallpaca, and other places was a good experience

Something important the price doent include the admision ticket of molino de sabandia, founder maison and the lunch.

The next day we comeback to some places to take a better pictures and to know more of them
To take a quick view of Arequipa this was great.

Its a really nice center, just have a walk there, stop somewhere and have a coffee and so on. Decent shooping avalible and som nice buildings. Still its a city center so nothing out of the blue but nice for just relaxing and walking.

“Great centre location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

As with most Peru Cities, they have the park in the middle of the City. This one is no different with the greenery and the trees, with the church and old buildings surrounding the park. Very relaxing and you can visit anyone of the restaurants surrounding it.

Wish we could have spent more time there, the city is vibrant. and the city center is great.

The monastery was a great tour- self guided.
