Today, accompanied by our guide, we’ll visit the old districts and colonial sites of the city of Quito at our own pace. This city, a World Cultural Heritage Site, has many delightful places of interest to offer the traveller: colonial architecture, scenes from everyday life in Quito, street vendors
offering a variety of goods from lottery tickets to handicrafts, narrow alleyways, numerous churches rich in décor, colourful facades of colonial buildings, as well as a view of Pichincha, Quito’s active volcano. We’ll stop for lunch in Independence Square, the nerve centre of the Colonial District. In the afternoon we’ll visit a number of sites of historical interest, such as La Ronda Street, one of the oldest streets in the city, the spacious Plaza San Francisco, and La Compañia Church, one of the best-known churches in the city. Free evening, then overnight stay in the same hotel (Hotel Rincon de Cantuña). Breakfast and lunch included.
