A Charming City and Former Capital of the Inca Empire

Today Cusco is full of historic buildings, character and history which saw it crowned as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983. The city if the gateway to the Sacred Valley and Machu Pichu but here you will also find a wealth of museums, art galleries, boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

Oftern referred to as the "Archaeological Capital of the Americas" Cusco is a striking city to explore. It is riddled with contrasts between the indigenous styles and the modern western world.

Most travellers will go to Cusco to either start the Inca Trail or take the train to the famous Machu Picchu, however we would definitely recommend stopping in Cusco to admire its fascinating attractions, beautiful natural setting and colourful festivals.

The Area

Although Cusco is a large city, getting around is straightforward as many of the cities sights are within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas in the historic centre. There are some ruins you can explore by foot or on a tour. The accommodation options are principally located around the centre of Cusco.

Best Time to Go

Cusco is pleasant throughout the year but the best time to visit is from May - October. There is a rainy season outside of these months but this doesn’t tend to have much of an impact on the services in the city.
