Getting to Ica from Lima and on to Cusco and winery visit

I'm looking at taking 14 days in Peru near the end of November.

Something along the lines of Lima - Ica - Cusco + Machu Pichu + Sacred Valley.

I can fly between Lima and Cusco so that is no issue. My biggest question is getting from to Ica from Lima and then on to Cusco. Are trains an option?

I'm going to Ica to stay at a winery, but I'm not set on this. If I can find a nice winery somewhere that I can visit that has accommodation near by then that works for me too. So I'm open to suggestions of altering my itinerary.

Also, how many days would be ideal for Lima?

See seat61.com for train info. I'm not aware of trains to Ica. Fly or bus.

Lima? It depends on what you want to see. 2 days might be enough. Do take care about the altitude in Cusco, Puno, etc. Acclimatise.

No trains to Ica.

Two nights in Lima is a good idea.

Wine really is not a strengh of Peru, so a winery visit is not a must.

Rather go to Nazca and fly over the Nazca lines

I'm having difficulty in finding airport details for Ica. The likes of Kayak do not believe it has one.

Any links or info would be appreciated.

at Ica u can find tours that do winery. They will go to a couple of wineries. If u have been to other wineries the wineries near Ica is sort of just ok, but the tour is cheap. I think I paid about about USD 15 for the two hour tour, partly just to kill time. If u go to Ica stay at Huacachina. U can do dune buggy and there is a nice oasis there to chill out.
