Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Surrounded by mountains and with some of its neighborhoods on the slopes of these mountains, the historic center of Cusco is a place of singular beauty.

Cusco has been called the "Rome of the New World," and spending time strolling its streets really brings home how accurate that nickname is. Despite the Spanish Catholic superstructure of arcades and churches (all of them quite charming), the foundations and bones of the city are clearly Inca in a way you will not see at this scale anywhere else in the world. Many of the great colonial casones were built on Inca foundations of slanting, massive stones fitted together in their peculiar and unmistakable planar jigsaw fashion, and those foundations are still everywhere to be seen as you walk the streets, especially the steep alley-like Inca-era ones such as calle Loreto.

It's true that there are many annoying hawkers and touts, including the ubiquitous massage-pushers and art dealers, but you will just have to ignore them.

Don't miss the Plaza de Armas, views of the surrounding hills twinkling with light at nighttime, the foundations of all the Inca palaces repurposed into colonial edifices, or the viewpoint of town from the Mirador de Plaza San Cristobal.

It’s really compact (ie small), badly laid out, all the explanations are in the very worst Pidgin English, much of it nonsensical. The place is grotesquely over staffed, most of the employees here stand around chatting when they’re not aggressively shouting at visitors to follow a certain (unexplained) direction around the building. Poor.

As an art lover what I expected happened ! When I first looked at it the eclectism style with reliefs pushed me to travel more . I didn’t want to leave the facade of the building just because it kept me looking at it ! I recommend you all to visit !

Too many hustlers, dog excrement, desperate energy, water that gives a person diarrhea, and bs stories about ruins. Everyone knows it was aliens.

The Historic District encompasses the massive Plaza de Armas, and several Museums, Art Galleries and Restaurants in the vicinity. The Cathedral, Coricancha, and surrounding areas with the Monuments, Murals, amazing scenery on the hillside, and the vibrant people made us fall in love with this ancient and clean area in this city.

The precisely created Inca Foundations of all the buildings, and the stunning Balconies all around just made us want to stop and stare. Even the numerous vendors and hawkers were not able to distract or annoy us.

There was so much to do and see here. We were only here for four days, so had to hit the ground running without giving ourselves enough time to acclimatize with the high altitude here. In spite of this, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and would love to return to see and explore everything again at a more relaxed pace.

Cusco is a city that makes you fall in love from the very beginning. It has a magic in each of its streets, which one cannot resist. The memory of Cusco will always remain in our memory.
