Amazing architecture, Christmas night market, fantastic restaurants and wonderful people. I loved our few days in Cusco. I highlight during our 3 week vacation in South America.

A beautiful part of the city, with lots to see and do. Try the Museo Inka (next to the Cusco Cathedral), which is full of interesting stuff. Also a great place to spend time acclimatising before or after a trek. Seriously, plan to spend a few days in Cusco to lessen altitude sickness, it's worth it, and Cusco deserves at... More

Absolutely great day walk around city centre. Atmosphere is so lovely around here and buildings are beautiful. Be careful with little children walking all dressed up around here with baby alpacas, they will be more than happy to take picture of you, just don't forget to pay for it!
