Nice clean square with a beautiful statue in the middle. You will hear constantly massage or hello my friend wil you buy some paintings from me. But I think that is on every touristic place. Allot really touristic restaurants but there are a few good ones. For example Inka grill looks really expensive but it is with good service and... More

If you have a hotel located in the old town it is great to stroll round during the evening, to browse in the shops and eat in one of a number of excellent restaurants serving local dishes.The cathedral is well worth a visit and spending some time in. We got to know the centre by a guided walking tour.

I really really love the Centro Historico. The Plaza is one of the most beautiful places in Peru. Also, Cusco is quite safe compared with other places in Peru. Is you visit Machu Picchu, don't forget to allocate a couple of days also to explore Cusco.

We visited Cusco already some years ago, but I saw Peru passing by and I wanted to describe our delight in spending a week in Cusco. We arrived there in order to get acclimatized, bt stayed on to take some Spanish lessons before continuing our trip from Peru to Bolivia. The big central plaza of Cusco is worth hanging around...
