Cusco is a beautiful Andean city. The central part is warm and welcoming. Prices are reasonable off the main plaza.

Visit the Cathedral it is full of gold and is beautiful. Look out for the painting of the last supper with guinea pig for the supper. The town square is very picturesque but it is the people who make this city.

Cusco is a wonderful town, rich with Inca and Viceroyal legacy. The many churches and plazas make the environment welcoming and cozy, and you can find Inca ruins and influence everywhere, from the walls to the food, to clothing and art. Even the people will often speak in Quechua. Learn some words and make some friends, they are great people!

Plenty of Police presence throughout Central Plaza and surrounding areas. It is certainly noticeable in Downtown Cusco area.

What a splendid city! The present, the colonial past and the pre-Colombian past all meet up at once. Great food, wonderful architecture.
