The ‘Lima Side by Side Tour’ is designed for those experienced city riders who do not want to miss anything while in Lima. We start in downtown Miraflores heading north bound to explore the most emblematic neighborhoods of the center of this huge and wonderful city, passing by the iconic Arequipa avenue, the residential green areas of San Isidro and many of the old homes and mansions of several architectural styles such as french, tudor, moorish, ArtDeco, central-european, and neo-colonial.
We explore neat parks and cozy plazas to understand much better the social transition from hood to hood, learning about their own history and identity. In addition, we appreciate street art such as murals when possible, old fashioned watering holes & shops with local flavor, focusing mostly on off the beaten traditional touristic areas. Our tour goes through some historic but under-seen neighborhoods of Lima, riding along many traditional, once aristocratic and invaluable monuments and treasures of the city.
We check out as well some of the main landmarks of the classic & residential middle-class districts of the city to later begin with the last part of our tour cycling back towards Miraflores for then having as ‘grand finalé’ a lovely ride overlooking the Pacific ocean by the beautiful cliffs of Lima.
