  • Many but many silver and souvenir stalls. Negotiate the price, will always give you more than twice what it's worth. I found this very annoying. Out that it is not known whether silver is real. If you are in the center of Cusco, buy souvenirs there, are much cheaper.

  • The craft market of Aguas Calientes unfolds in a series of narrow streets lined with shops and stalls. The offered products are in line with those found elsewhere but the prices are higher than in Cusco or Lima. It's worth a spin if you have time, maybe waiting to catch the train

  • This outdoor market is a maze of family-owned shops and kiosks with a wide variety of handmade goods. You can find some colorful shoes and clothing along with novelty games and other goods.
