The city center is quite photogenic. Don’t forget to take in López Palace – and on the other side of the street, visit the Manzana de la Rivera, a group of nine houses that operates as a cultural center. Calle Palma (Palm Street) boasts many neoclassic buildings.
For shopping, check out the malls in the more upscale neighborhoods, like the Shopping del Sol, the Mariscal López and the Villa Morra. At night, choose one of the countless bars found at the Paseo de Carmelitas, in Villa Morra.
If you have time, visit the colonial city of Luque (12 km / 7 mi), be moved by the delicate handcrafts that can be found in Itauguá (40 km / 25 mi), and view the collection of indigenous feather art at the Boggiani Museum in San Lorenzo (12 km / 7 mi).
