Day 1 : Lima / Nazca
Breakfast at your hotel.
Today you'll travel by regular bus along the Peruvian coast to Nazca (a six hour ride). Upon arrival in Nazca you will transfer to the hotel and help you in registering. Afternoon visit to the Antonini Museum opened in 1999 that displays the discoveries of Professor Orefici and his team in the pre-Incan city Cahuachi. Supposedly the discoveries hold the key to understanding the Nazca lines. This Italian initiative presents finds of the sophisticated Nazca culture and details the process of archaeological excavations. In the museum's backyard is the Bisambra aqueduct, an ancient Nazca stone irrigation canal. The museum possesses the world's greatest collection of painted textiles, from the huge adobe city of Cahuachi, but as of yet has no place to display them. (B)
