The ruins of Ollantaytambo were the first I've ever seen in my life. We were overwhelmed by the greatness, the hight, ... We visited the ruins from two sides. The view from the top makes you wonder how they build this hundreds of years ago.

If the trains to Machu Picchu from Cuzco are booked, you can always take the train from here. Yes, you need to get a taxi from Cuzco, but the cost is not that great and you get another attraction to visit. As others have described, the trail here is steep but well worth it. When you get to the top, look across at the mountain across the valley and ask yourself, "How the hell did they build that up there?"
The ruins here are modest, but worth the visit. You can take a guide which I thought was too expensive, or just do the trail yourself. Do visit the marketplace down below for some local items at reasonable cost. If you need to stay overnight, I can recommend the Hotel Sauce. Restaurants in town are also very good.

In my last visit to Ollantaytambo found that a ceramic artist Lucha Soler - open a studio in the old town . Soler who is presenting and selling very fine ceramics using local clay and hand burnishing. The pieces are original and contemporary.
Soler also taught his technique to two other artists in the village and they also are presenting and using similar techniques in their own studios.
If you are in Ollantaytambo and interested in Fine Pottery this place is worth a visit .
Soler studio is located in Patacalle Street in the old town

This is a nice trail to do. It is easy once you get passed the steep stone steps past Machu Picchu.

If heights aren't your thing, avoid. Take your water. It doesn't look like much from the bottom but the climb is steep and as you get to the top, its very dusty, You'll definitely want your water. The steps are steep and at times require a high step up...take your time as you become gased easily given the altitude. With all that said the views are magnificent. Look for the face in the opposite hillside. See the storage used by the brilliant to store foods through the seasons carved into the cliffs. Marvel as the sunsets the shadows falling into very startegic areas where the calendar was used to managed day to day actvities.
