“3D history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

You get to see the mixture of Inca/Spanish/peruvian culture infused in this city. Walking around near plaza, you also see authentic bakery shops and coffee.

“Follow the Centuries through the Narrow Streets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

A unique piece of Inca and Spanish colonial history, fascinating buildings built on top of Inca foundations, sad that one culture decided to destroy another!

“Walking Cusco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

The striking thing about Cusco is the inca architecture and their mastery over the stone cutting, it looks like all is cut with a later..just unbelievable.

“colonial city but where are the Peruvians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is really a very beautiful city, not comparable with any other city I have visited in S America. It is however stunning that you don't see poor Peruvians on the streets like in other cities, selling all kind of stuff and adding a lot of local charm. There is a very high police presence - do they chase away poor Peruvians?

“Beautiful quiet colonial town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Cuzco was the best city we discovered in Peru thanks to the architecture, the food and the friendly Peruvian people.
