Immerse yourself in Peru's diverse landscapes and vibrant towns and cities.
Whether you want to chow down on deliciously fresh ceviche in Lima, descend into the wildlife-filled Amazon, or take the trail to Machu Picchu, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Peru has to offer.
With its scorched coastal deserts, steamy jungles and snow-capped mountains, Peru is blessed with beautiful scenery. These spectacular landscapes are an adventurer's playground, too, offering everything from hiking to biking and more. Beyond this lie ancient Inca cities, charming old-world towns and some of the most mouthwatering food in all of South America.
