We spent days wandering around Cusco and there is loads of things to see. The main square is a good place to sit down in and see life go by

Get lost in the streets of Cusco, don't go to the tourist trap restaurants. If you like history check out the Temple of the Sun and the main Cathedral where the Inca Garcilaso is buried.

A lovely town/city that allows a lot of space to be available to really appreciate what is around you. Some beautiful historic buildings all around.

I love this area from the amazing resturants, lounges & clubs near by, shopping, walking tours and organic ice cream they make before your eyes. I literally fell in love sitting by the fountain talking for hours and walking around this beautiful city. Very safe for solo women travelers and lots to do, you do know how to say no... More

Cusco has a lot of sites to show, but Centro Historico is just good enough to keep us busy for 1 or 2 days visiting its museums, churches, markets and restaurants. Best time to avoid either so many people or raining season would be May to June and mid September to mid October.

Walkable and lots of sites, archbishops palace was excellent for Cuscueno art and the La Casa Concho museum about Macho Picchu was interesting (good to see after visiting). Every restaurant was relatively inexpensive with US dollars and offered different and delicious dishes.

filthy dirty city the only interesting part was the old city, lots of restaurants and shopping, was only there to transfer to Mucchu Pucchu. Be care about the altitude it hits you especially if you are from the beach as we are.

This was a fun area in cusco. Don't sit on the grass! Not allowed! Who knew? Lol. Great reastaurants and lots of really good stores to buy some great baby alpaca sweaters and scarves. The market is close by and not for me but and amazing experience to see the way the locals live.
