“Really Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

When you think of the history that occurred here - it is indeed very impressive. The city offers a free tour guide for groups and it is really worth it to discover. We were there in June which is a month of celebration for the city of Cusco. Lots happening (dancing, music etc...)

“Historic Picturesque City Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Great city center with many sites, places of interest, and restaurants. Started my daily city explorations from here and wandered off in a different direction each day. Last couple weeks of June the city center is none stop festivals. The restaurants on the square are predominantly geared to tourists, but still good food. Shops provide many travel items, from souvenirs to luggage, cameras, and tours. The churches on the square are worth seeing with or without the tours. Don't be afraid to buy the multi-site entrance tickets. Unfortunately the two main church groups are on separate tickets.

“Stroll Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The Cusco Historic Center is relatively small and easy to stroll. Stop by the Cathedral, shops and restaurants, and maybe even walk up to the Hotel Monestario to see the artwork on the second level. The altitude may force you to slow down a bit, so sit in the plaza and do some excellent people watching.
