My wife and I took a local bus from Cusco to Pisac. The bus depot (if you can call it that) is South East of the Plaza De Armas. We got a taxi to take us there for like a dollar rather than waste time finding it on our own. The bus tickets were also only a dollar or two per person and the bus took about an hour and a half to get to Pisac and it was quite the experience. You could also negotiate a taxi to take you there for probably around $20-$40 depending on your negotiating skills and the taxi would be quite a bit faster.

If you like adventure and have plenty free time and no luggage, take the bus, its quite an experience.

If not, take a taxi. Its expensier but faster and much more comfortable.

It should be a 30 minute ride by taxi.

You can get a big seat in a modern van (with plenty of space for luggage) for S/.5, the standing-room only bus for S/.2 or a taxi for ~S/.40
