Charming city with some really great places to eat but the small streets are packed with cars which I found rather unpleasant.

If you like a quaint colonial town, you would love Arequipa. It's a big city, but it gives a feel like a small town. It's best to walk around the town and enjoy the view. Surrounding mountains are amazing!

Arequipa is a beautiful historic city, known as the "white city" because of the constructions made out of a while vulcanic stone. It's surrounded by three snowy volcanos, which can be seen from anywhere you are. Weather is always sunny and locals are always wearing beautiful hats - make sure you have yours.
