Cute historic area well worth visiting. But be prepared for the onslaught of street hawkers selling "100% alpaca" hats, "massages", carvings, and various other sundry items.

I loved the peaceful surroundings. No neon signs, billboards,... There are a lot of people in the center but it is not crowded, you feel relaxed in this city.

The Inca and Spanish Colonial history as well as the architecture are beautiful. We appreciated the old churches and art work.

Cusco is extraordinary, full of surprises, this is a must, you really have to spend at least one full day in Cusco and in its surroundings.

A must visit area if you are in Cusco. Exploring surrounding area is particularly rewarding if you know a bit of Inca and colonial history and can see the blending of these cultural influences in the narrow streets and architecture.

Centro Historico is one of the most visited destinations. In this part of town, there are several impressive landmarks to visit such as Coricancha, Jardin Sagrado, Hosp Antonio Lorena. Centro Historico has a lot to offer: famous sites, great restaurants and a range of exciting entertainment. I liked it very much

Cusco is simply a city full of magic, wonder is left, especially its people are very friendly and simple. And what about Machu Picchu.
