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.
