All reviews historic center the main square beautiful architecture narrow streets street vendors walk around beautiful plaza inca empire city tour machu picchu sacred valley cathedral parade tourists culture benches kfc
Grand historic city. Very walkable as long as you are able to do hills very similar in height and degree to San Francisco. People are friendly, food and shopping are both fantastic. Can't wait to return.
We went into two of these churches and loved them both. While we prefer Convento de Santo Domingo church these are amazing as well. The center is the perfect experience for Cusco. Take pictures and embrace where you are.
Whether you walk around or simply sit on the steps in front of the cathedral, you will feel the energy of excitement coming from people from all over the world. It's lovely to walk the small streets without the fear of cars and with the...More
We were in Cusco for two days before doing the Inca trail. This city is so beautiful and I fell in love with it! Definitely visit the Centro Historico and Plaza de Armas. Just walk around and you can experience the Incan empire's marvels. There...More
We walked through the main square many times and spent many hours at one of the restaurant balconies watching people and enjoying drink/food. There was always something going on in the square. The center of Cusco really is a beautiful place.

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!
