back to Inca's glory days

The centre of Cusco is soooo beautiful and takes you back to the glory days of the Incas. Had some rain but mostly sunny and warm.

Cusco, is from my experience unique, the historical part is about 1 square mile i guees and is so atmospheric, mystical and ofcouse historical. You need a minimum of 3 nights and two days to just have the experience in my opinion. Apart from taking a City Tour and the Surrounding Ruines, just wander arround the market places, the Artisn...

Our hotel was near the historic center of Cusco. The narrow sidewalks weave along shops and restaurants. I found the souvenir shops to be so reasonably priced, I did not try to negotiate lower prices. The plaza, Colonial Cathedral and other buildings could easily fill a day of walking. Cobblestones are a bit rough. Wear sturdy shoes.

Beautiful City. A place to unwind from the world and spend at least couple of days here. Must take in the city and the character of the place also ,instead of just concentrating on the Inca Trail. Yes altitude can be a problem , but the coca tea helps and carry your medication , if required

This is a beautiful area where you can wander around at night and still feel completely safe. There are a lot of shops selling Alpaca clothes as well as a ridiculous number of tour agencies and restaurants.

National Peru Travel are excellent, plan to the last detail, definitely will be traveling with them Loved the historical city centre of Cusco. The mixture of ancient inca structures, narrow streets and the colonial architectures made it a very interesting place to explore. The atmosphere was always vibrant and friendly. Souvenirs in Cusco were also much cheaper than in Lima!... More

There is so much to see in the historic centre - cathedrals galore, cobblestone streets and a number of plazas to relax in. It is a really pretty place and really easy to explore on foot - you can't really get lost!
