    The humble and sincere opinion that I give on the wonderful Laura Max Museum in Cusco, I define it as the co-creation of heaven and Earth, by his magic, mystery and beauty in every work, every texture in each color, each figure or form of design, transporting me to a world I learned to see with our physical eyes and enjoy the soul...

    We enjoyed a wonderful 45 minutes with Paolo who gave us a personalized tour of the Museum which has numerous tapestries by Maximo Laura as well as information on their design and creation. The tapestries are stunning and Paola has excellent English which made the tour a special part of our morning in Cusco with, thankfully, no persistent sales pitch.

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September). Budget-conscious visitors can choose from a range of hostels and small family-run hotels, many located in quiet streets just a walk away from the town's central area.
