CITY DESIGNED IN SHAPE OFPUMA (BY INCAS)
This is the continent’s oldest city. Known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, the historic Inca capital offers a blend of ancient and modern—quite literally. As a city, Cusco (or Cuzco) features museums, restaurants and tons of shops. While it also, however, is anchored by ruins, ancient temples and cathedrals.

Those who come to Cusco can also look forward to the natural beauty surrounding. From the Andes, to the cloud forests, to the lowlands of the Amazon, this is definitely a place for the outdoor lover as well.
  • SACSAYHUAMáN

    This is a citadel that once stood as part of the heart of the Incan Empire capital. Constructed of massive stones, it stands high above the city and served as a one-time fortress. Today, these ruins are among the most popular in Peru.

  • INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU

    The trail to the famed Machu Picchu in part begins in Cusco. It actually consists of three trails: The Classic, One Day and Mollepata. Travelers can expect to go through a variety of landscapes to include cloud forest, mountains and even tundra.

  • TAMBOMACHAY

    Another archeological Incan site, this was discovered to be a system of ancient aqueducts and canals. There is some debate about what it exactly it was intended for. Some believe it a military post and some think possibly an ancient resort /spa area.
