I was suffering altitude sickness in Cusco, so I went to catch the local bus and was offered to share a taxi for 5 local currency. It is a lower altitude. Very cheap. I had a walk around and browsed the market. where some things were cheaper, some not, but you tell them it is cheaper in Cusco and they... More

We came here to see the markets and the ruins. WE didnt go into the ruins as there was a fee and we already had paid fees for so many other sites (get the bolleta de tourista). We coudl get good views of the walls and terraces from the road. As for the markets, they were very nice, but not... More

Make sure that any visit to Cusco includes a day trip to the Sacred Valley - Pisac was the first stop (and is apparently much better if you go on a market day) and these ruins were an interesting bus ride up the mountain and a nice wander around. Lots of stairs to climb to see the different parts of... More

I always like to visit Pisac, you can always find something nice and different to buy. We were lucky to see the arrivals of the Mayors of the different villages around Pisac

I thought Pisac as a small adjacent town near Cusco before I went there. In addition to be infused Peruvian art crafts, the scenic view from the mountain trail is amazing! I hired a taxi driver to spend enough time from the entrance to the village market. The driver dropped me off at the entrance of up hill side of... More

The ruins of Pisac are wonderful and something you must see and experience in Peru. The town of Pisac has some of the friendliest people in the world. The market was great as well and has some beautiful Peruvian textiles.

We visited both the ruins and the market on Sunday: we loved it because the ruins showed the agriculture knowledge of Incas and the market is very big

Very beautiful place - extended. Not so many people as the site is very big. you can walk between the different points of view, each area dedicated to a certain function. and see the cultivable levels, on every (sun-exposed) side of the mountains.

We spent the second day at Cuzco, touring around the Sacred Valley. The route went around bends and sort of followed the Urubamba River. All along the road, one can see how the Incas farmed the land; stair like patches of green went up the hills on both sides of the river ... They were the experts in terrace farming.... More
