I do not think so. Normally its a 3 night 4 day affair.

While I don't believe any one is offering a package tour, you might be able to do a two day trip, but you would really be pushing it and everything would have to go like clockwork, which I wouldn't count on. If you got the first flight out of Lima (I have seen Star Peru flights as early as 6:30am) you could get to Ollantaytambo and catch the afternoon train to AC and stay the night there.

Day two, try and get the first bus up to MP take a quick look around (maybe 2 hours), get back into AC and take a train back to Ollantaytambo, cab to Cusco airport and late flight back to Lima. While I think this would be doable (not sure what the latest flight out of Cusco is), I would not recommend it, way too much work and risk for only a few hours in MP, I would say you need 3 days minimum.

MP is not close to Lima; you have to travel to Cusco before visiting MP. A 2-day trip from Lima has a high chance of trouble, esp. in the rainy season.

Re #3, no self-promotion in the forum!
