Most tourists fly into Lima, the capital, at first sight a rather unappealing, sprawling, traffic-choked city of 8.4 million. But head to the upmarket district of Miraflores with its green parks and clifftop walks, or fashionable Barranco, and you will see a totally different side. If you’re only here for a short time, Barranco is a must. Cooled by sea breezes, this is where the Peruvian upper classes used to spend their summers in the 1920s. It is now an artists’ enclave, and lovely to walk around with its restored colonial houses, artisan shops and galleries, and some of Lima’s best bars and restaurants.
