How long is a bus ride from Lima to Lake Titicaca?

We only have two extra days in Lima and want to see Titicaca without having to spend money on a plane ticket to get to Titicaca (unless it's really inexpensive). Is it worth the trip? If so, how long and who would I research for trip info?

If Lake Titicaca is too far.... can you suggest somewhere we can take a bus from Lima that is worth seeing on the coast? We will be there in beginning of July.

(we will have already completed a tour to MP, Cuzco and Amazon where our plane tickets/intinerary have already been paid for and can't change).

THANK YOU for your suggestions!

By bus to Puno from Lima will take you at least 22 hours each way !

Visit the Nazca lines.

Xochitl is right, going to Puno would take too much time by bus. Nasca would be the best option. Take Cruz del Sur (www.cruzdelsur.com.pe) or Oltursa (www.oltursa.com.pe).. I think Oltursa is the best bus of Peru =)

You can also go to Caral (north of Lima, full day tour) or enjoy Lima too. It is worth it to stay a couple of days in Lima; the gastronomy is amazing!!
