Arequipa, Peru
  • Is the city of Arequipa worth visiting in Peru? What are the main attractions of the region? I will be visiting Lima and Cusco and am looking to extend my itinerary to include at least one more destination in Peru. Any advice welcome! 
  • Arequipa is definitely worth a visit if you have the time - it is Peru's second biggest city and probably the most attractive city in the country, with elegant white colonial buildings and a stunning backdrop of volcanic mountains. The historic centre of Arequipa boasts many tourist attractions and the region is wonderful for hiking - exploring the nearby Colca Canyon is a must! Check out this short guide to Arequipa for some ideas.

Howdy, Stranger!
