Lima and Sacred Valley - things to do?

Hi, we will be visiting Lima and Sacred Valley (couple of days/nights at each location) in early September and are going to do the train ride Macha Pichu thing...but I also wanted to see if there are some "off the beaten path" types of places we could visit in each place?

Maybe a 'hidden' bar or nightclub, or amazing restaurant with a view...or bar/lounges, or something interesting and fun to do during the day in each place?

Thanks in advance

Do not miss the Huacatay restaurant in Urubamba, for lunch or diner.

When in Lima, if you are not going to the better known restaurants you an try Symposium or Manifiesto which are great high end restaurants in San Isidro and Miraflores.

Depending on the exact dates of your visit, you may be able to go to the Mistura food festival in Lima.

(September 6 is the opening and September 15 is the ending).

There are some tours but you can go on your own.

One of the unusual bars in Barranco is

Have a look at LimaEasy (www.limaeasy.com) , probably the best website about Lima in English. They have tons of information. And just yesterday someone asked on tehir new discussion board about what to do in Lima for 3 days and they came up with some nice suggestions http://www.limaeasy.com/discussions/index.
