What was the highlight of your trip?
Beyond its peaceful mountains, Peru has plenty of surprises. Lima’s dining scene is world-class, with two restaurants in the top ten of the prestigious World’s Best Restaurants list (Central at number one, a fine dining experience rooted in Peruvian ingredients, and Maido, highlighting Japanese techniques with local ingredients at number six). Arequipa, all white sandstone and pretty plazas, might be the cutest old town in South America. Luxury trains whisk you to Machu Picchu and back.
