One visit to the historical center and that was enough for me. Tons of shops with alpaca items. Lots of jewelry shops and lots of women trying to get you to buy a massage. Some of the clothing stores were really nice, some were just...More
Very interesting area. The central hub of the ancient Inca capitol. Literally the navel of the earth. Markets and vendors everywhere. Little mom and pop restaurants everywhere. Lovely at night. Massive fireworks on New Year’s Eve.
The street sellers are persistent. Best not to even...More
Really good place if you like architecture stunning building. Some amazing art work inside. So much to see and learn. Some amazing craftsmanship and historical facts definitely worth a visit must see if your there.
This is one of the most beautiful squares I have seen throughout the world. The churches flanking it are interesting and certainly worth a visit. I especially loved the second story cafes looking out on the plaza.
It is a lovely place, and Cuzco is lovely itself. October is just great to visit Cuzco, with sunshine, blue blue sky and a few clouds. There are many restaurants and cafe around the square which is much enjoyable to sit down and just relax.

Hi! We landed in Cusco and immediately left to go to the Sacred Valley. This helps to acclimate to the high altitude. We were there for two days and then went to Macchu Picchu for two days. We then returned to Cusco for two more days. We made our arrangements through Avanti Tours in the US which then subcontracted with Condor Tours. They had EXCELLENT guides and services. We loved our hotels--the Casa Andina in the Sacred Valley was very nice and even had a planetarium on the grounds! Then we also enjoyed the Inkaterra Pueblo Hotel in Aguas Caliente--the town at the base of Macchu Picchu. In Cusco we stayed at another nice hotel, the Aranwa Boutique Hotel. Condor arranged for our train to Macchu Picchu, our various tours and guides and travel within Peru. We also got our entrance passes and hiking passes for Huyana Picchu in this same manner. Have a great time! It is a trip of a lifetime!
