“Beautiful and lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Cusco historic center is an intriguing and stunningly beautiful place. Full of interesting Inca and colonial buidings, its location in the highlands of Peru surrounded by mountains is just amazing. The preservation of the area has been successful and apart from the unobtrusive Starbucks, MacDonalds and KFC, the Irish pubs and the trinket stores it still feels that you have stepped back in time. We thought it was one of the most beautiful cities we have ever been to.
