Pisac is an area of ruins in the Sacred Valley not too far from Cuzco. It's smaller than Machu Picchu but very impressive in its own right, with many buildings still remaining, and stunning views of the valley. About an hour is enough to see it and you'll need to climb some steps to fully enjoy it. Pisac is awesome... More

Very well kept ruins, good to visit while in the Valle Sagrado. Many steps and high level, 3400 mts. same as Cusco.

Pisac and the ruins at Pisac are on every tour of the sacred valley and Machu Picchu and for good reason. the Inca site is, as with all of them, beautiful, architecturally impressive, spectacular in its setting, and historically significant. The climb to the top is a significant one up several sets of stairs and all but the most fit... More

The ruins at Pisac and the view are first-rate, but getting there is not for everyone. The path up the mountain from the parking lot is steep and there is no hand rail, so lean hard toward the mountain wall! The altitude at this site is somewhat lower than Cuzco, but still a challenge for most lowlanders as they trudge... More

This was another of the great places we got to see while we were in Peru. Frankly, I feel like a broken record with my other reviews, but seriously, everything we saw and were shown in Peru was far more than we were expecting. And we had high expectations. All of those were blown away. This was yet another in... More

These ruins are huge. First, how to get there: You can take a city bus, it cheap, but it will stop a lot and is usually crowded. You can take a Combi, which is about 5 soles and usually full of natives and tourists, but is a straight shot, takes about 40 mins to get to Psaq with this method.... More

When we wanted to visit the Sacred Valley of Cusco, we almost joined one of the cheap (15 US$) daily tours, but our agency recommended us to pay more for a private tour. They told us that if we would only visit the Sacred Valley ones in our life, we should do it good. And they were right, standing with... More

If you are going to visit other sites visit them first and then you can go to Machu Pichu. Other sites are amazing and some have water still running. Take your time to appreciate smaller cities and ruins.
