Definitely a worthwhile visit while in Cusco although quite noisy and busy with tourists, vendors trying to sell you something (even massages) and they also have some wonderful high end stores. The cathedral is worth a visit as is the museum. There was a parade...More

Cusco can be a bit intense at times with vendors, activities traffic etc but the old center is a bit more relaxed with good choices of bars, restaurants and shops. If you’re lucky you will catch a parade with colorful costumes and coordinated dances

There is always something happening on the square. Sit and enjoy the festivities and drink in the culture.

Enjoyed a half day tour of Cusco, our guide Marilu Salizar of Valencia Travel Cusco was full of information regarding this ancient historical town. The architecture of the many buildings and churches is impressive. I would recommend to do this tour.

In June when we visited Cusco there happened to be the Cusco festival with children performing dances/shows in a competition. It seems there's always something going on at the Plaza de Armas. It's a beautiful plaza area, with beautiful cathedrals and architecture on every side,...More

We loved cusco, it's such an easy city to wander about in, full of cute nooks and interesting shops. Quite hilly towards the outskirts though so not ideal for pram/wheelchair users.
