Lovely city, we walked the city and also took a tour. We were impressed not only by the cleanliness of the streets but also by how the people are friendly and nice.

Can you say shopping!? It was great to go shop and walk through the streets. Anytime we ventured out of the district, e we're disappointed.

The plaza is a great place to start a visit to Arequipa. It is surrounded by restaurants, museums, stores, tour operators, etc. The cathedral (shown) overlooks the square.

Easy to walk around, the buildings have been restored and are worth strolling around, which can be done in 30-60 minutes.
