A Welcoming Country
Peru offers an incredible variety of landscapes: the arid plains of Nazca and the mysterious Nazca Lines, two of the world's deepest canyons near Arequipa, the country's second largest city, the lush rainforest in the East, and 2.000 km of vast coastal desert that is in reality just one, huge beach.
With an MSC cruise you can explore this extremely welcoming country, where there is always time for a chat, a Peruvian ceviche – national fish dish – or having a drink together.
Peru also boasts temples and stone cities built by the Incas (the most famous being Machu Picchu) and there is evidence of even older civilisations that over the millennia have lived between the Andes and the Amazon rainforest.
An MSC World Cruise will allow you feel the pulse of a nation that offers so much to its visitors: lost crumbling citadels, sacred lagoons with therapeutic properties, Inca necropolises,colonies of penguins and sea lions, megalithic walls, tropical rain forests and bustling cities.
Lima, the capital, is a bustling modern metropolis that effortlessly manages to mix traditional Peruvian heritage with the ostentation of the XXI century.
