Quell any notions of Lima not being as exciting as its South American counterparts - Buenos Aires springs to mind - as it has plenty going for it and is certainly on the up. A selection of new hotels, world-renowned museums, and superb restaurants make it one of our must-visit holiday destinations. The city's historical centre and its Plaza Mayor is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with finely preserved colonial architecture.
