Experience Cusco,
the ancient capital of the Inca Empire

Destination Highlights

Take the train to the legendary citadel of Machu Picchu or hike the iconic Inca Trail

Take a day to acclimate and immerse yourself in history in Cusco's Plaza de Armas

Explore the Temple of the Sun, Qorikancha, and see the blend of Inca stone with colonial arquitecture

Delve into the Sacred Valley, dotted with charming villages and get to the Pisac ruins

Take a day trip to enjoy Rainbow Mountain's vibrant color palette


It is without a doubt the ancient heart of the Quechua (Inca) Empire! Streets lined with cobblestone streets, and surrounded by impossibly shaped Inca Walls, make it feel mysterious and part of a lost civilization. You can wander around the history filled Cathedral, or stroll through the colorful and vibrant local markets. In each corner you will get soaked in the beautiful blend of Inca and Spanish architecture.

The most adventurous can hike the Inca Trail to the legendary Machu Picchu, while foodies will devour fresh, local specialties like warming bowls of Lomo Saltado, or Cuy barbecue.

Cusco promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Andes! We recommend spending here a couple of days for devouring and acclimating to the altitude, before embarking on your Machu Picchu expedition.
