Arrival and orientation.
Sightseeing in Cusco – the capital of antiquity's Inca Empire, "the navel of the world". Featuring Q'oricancha, the Incan Temple of the Sun and Cusco's 16th-century cathedral, which is full of original artwork including a silver altar. Spend the evening in a great little hotel just a few blocks off the Plaza de Armas.
Take in the agricultural center of the Incas and the lush, green Sacred Valley. With stops at a Peruvian arts center highlighted by weaving traditions and chances to pet and feed and mountain animals like alpaca and vicuna. Then it's downhill to Pisac and its old archeological matrix, plus Pisac market. We'll continue our journey through the Valley. Lunch in Urubamba – "the Pearl of the Vilcanota". Then tour the small hamlet of Ollantaytambo, and take a train to Aguas Calientes – the village is on the edge of the Amazon rainforest and at the foot of Machu Picchu Mountain.
Machu Picchu! The glorious Incan stone edifices of this stunning site are yours to explore after a 20-minute bus ride. Start the day off right, getting call caught up in the sunrise as seen from the Inca Guard House. Next is a two-hour tour of the sprawling complex. Intrepid buccaneers can ascend Huayna Picchu mountain, from which they will be rewarded with a grand vista over Machu Picchu. Other treks lead to Inti Punktu (Sun Gate) and the Temple of the Moon. There's also shopping for souvenirs and hot springs to fill your time with before catching the train back to Cusco around 3:30pm, with arrival in Cusco at 7:30pm.Get More Info Now
