Imperial City

Capital of the Inca Empire for three centuries, World Heritage-listed Cusco is now a major tourist destination, drawing nearly 2 million annual tourists with its well-preserved colonial architecture and proximity to Machu Picchu. A trip to Cusco usually involves excursions into the surrounding area, dotted with remains of major Inca sites. Visitors preferring to spend the majority of their Cusco vacation in the city itself can spend time touring fine museums and galleries, and exploring the city's vibrant outdoor markets. Steeped in history and Incan heritage, Cusco represents one of the best places in Peru to learn about the local culture and get a feel for what the continent looked like when the first Europeans arrived. Take stress off the schedule by using our Peru itinerary maker.

Where to stay

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.
