What will you do?
You will learn the history of the great monuments of the first park of Lima. Then you will visit the palace of the Exposition, an emblematic point of the city that was built in 1872 to host the International Exposition of Lima. Here also is located the Museum of Art of Lima (MALI), which houses the most outstanding works of Peruvian art. It is a collection ranging from pre-Hispanic to contemporary and one of the most complete in our city. You will also visit a secret jewel of Lima: the Museum of Italian Art, which brings together works by Italian artists of the early twentieth century.
