I have had the chance of visiting the downtown at sunset with a sky looking like the chapelle sixteenth. Very nice and friendly/familly atmosphere where people gather in the par and plaza and around the cathedral and arches all around...

Cusco is the capital of the Incas empire and in every single step in the historic center there are walls that prove their great skills in working with the stone and build impressive edifices! The spanish used many of them as a base for their structures so much is saved.

Great city for walking, albeit at a slow pace due to the elevation. Interesting restaurants at all price points, craftspeople not too aggressive in their sales tactics. The Pre-Colombian Museum is one of the best museum experiences I have had anywhere. We felt safe everywhere we walked, even after dark. Take your time.

Center of Cusco and close to just about everything you could need in this charming city. Stroll around the plaza, grab something to eat and drink, take in the sights and I'd recommend a walking tour to learn about the interesting history of the city and region. (It is the city of Inka Kings after all...)

Amazing architecture, Christmas night market, fantastic restaurants and wonderful people. I loved our few days in Cusco. I highlight during our 3 week vacation in South America.
