My brother and I spent some time hanging out here on our first night in Cusco during a trip in October. We sat down and ate some food from a nearby restaurant and just watched the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It looks just as amazing during the day as it does during the night, with tons of lights... More

Cusco is an old town with a lot of history no matter where you turn. It is a Spanish city built on top of Incan ruins and a city. No matter which way you turn there is lot of history and beauty.

We loved walking around the whole city. Nice shopping stores. Plaza de Armas was beautiful during the day but specially at night. Vendors browse around you, but they were not rude. We also ventured to go to one of the local open markets, where tourist don't go, and it was really awesome to see that time has stopped there. It's... More

At least once in your life you should visit this amazing place. It's higher than Machu Pichu so beware and prepare yourself.

You'll enjoy the stay there: many sightseeing spots, museums, bars & restaurants. Plenty of day tour choices to the sacred valley, rainbow maintain, not to mention Machu Picchu!

The lighted cathedral and main plaza is crowned by the twinkling lights of the suburbs on the surrounding hills. A definite must see in Cuzco

Plaza de Armas is very nice, but it's impossible to walk here (even at night) because of street vendors. Plaza de Armas is full of them and they are trying to sell you everything - from glasses to peruvian caps and other stuff. You can't relax there
