Cusco is undoubtedly one of the world’s top destinations for nature lovers.

 

Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca´s Empire, is one of the most visited cities in the world. With its unique Inca architecture mixed in with modern colonial buildings, Cusco is one of the most unique places on Earth.

 

OVERVIEW:

 

Cusco City tour is a Perfect for those looking to experience the region’s archeological and cultural treasures in a short amount of time.

 

Cusco is located at an altitude of 3,350m above sea level; Cusco, which means ‘’navel of the world’’ in the Inca language (Quechua), has a mostly indigenous population of around 500,000 and is centered around the Plaza de Armas, which is dominated by the Cathedral and La Compania de Jesus Church. Its cloistered arcades house many fine restaurants, bars and shops.

 

Make the most of your free days in Cusco to explore its amazing churches, colonial buildings and picturesque streets, many of which have Inca walls, arches and doorways. On a hill overlooking the city stands the archaeological park of Sacsayhuaman, where some of the most spectacular Inca walls can be found, including a massive 128 ton stone. There are also many optional excursions and activities available such as white water rafting, horse riding, and mountain biking and canoeing on offer.

 

Cusco is often referred to as the ‘’Archaeological Capital of the Americas’’, Cusco is a beautiful city riddled with contrasts between the indigenous styles and the modern western world. It is these contrasts that have given Cusco its rare beauty.

 

Cusco itself has a lot to offer the visitor and most travellers usually end up seduced with this vibrant city and stay longer than first planned.

 

When arriving in Cusco from the coast you will immediately notice the thin clear mountain air, a result of the City’s high altitude. The first day in particular should be spent quietly relaxing and taking things easy as you gently acclimatize. This is an ideal opportunity to see the highlights Cusco has to offer such as a tour of the City, the nearby Inca Ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.
