    The Sacred Valley of the Incas

    34 reviews

    Best explored on horseback! You can find a rancher trying to sell you a reasonably priced trip anywhere you start hiking yourself, (oddly enough we found ours next to a tattoo parlor)

    The Inca Trail

    29 reviews

    Amazing. Worth doing again and again, and a life-list "must do" for anyone who loves wilderness and ancient cultures. Really, one of the best times I've had...

    City of Cuzco Historic Center

    33 reviews

    Cuzco is the jumping off point for the Inca Trail so most travellers to Peru will end up there. It's more than just a gateway - amazing Incan architecture right in the city and lots of cool places for travelers to explore and discover.

    Plaza de Armas

    32 reviews

    The center of is vibrant and bustling with tourists and locals all at once. A mix of Incan and colonialism all around. It is beautiful to see in the day and at night with the Cathedral, shops, restaurants, and bars surrounding the plaza. Despite all the beauty, it should be noted that many world-changing events occurred here. The last ...

    Ollantaytambo was a pre inca political, administrative and religious center. It was conquered by Inca Pachacutec and revamped. Ollantaytambo means Ollantay's passageway. Ollantay was a general who fell in love with Pachacutec's daughter but wasn't noble to marry her. Ollantay then takes refuge at Ollantaytambo. This was a passage point between the jungle and the mountains and consists of several ...

    Often mispronounced as "Sexy Woman," this Inca site looked like a high walled fortress. The stones used to construct the fortress were remarkably large boulders. An impressive view to see from all angles. A famous Inca festival is held here every year called Inti Raymi. I would like to come back to experience the festival someday.

    Huayna Picchu

    17 reviews

    I didn't realize until visiting Machu Picchu that Huayna Picchu, the tall peak behind the historic city, is considered a separate attraction. It's an aggressive hike up, but well worth it when you get to the top- the views are spectacular. We lucked out in arriving at the city early enough to get one of the last spots, but I ...

    A super fun neighborhood on the sea-cliffs of Lima. Tons of places to go out, and bar hopping is super easy since many spots are densely packed together. Bring your dancing shoes for so'

    San Francisco Cathedral and Catacombs

    17 reviews

    This place is a must-see for the catacombs and also for the art. You have to go on a tour, which was annoying since our "English-speaking" tour guide clearly spoke English as his second language and with a crazy Italian accent. Yes, really.

    Cusco Cathedral

    16 reviews

    The Cusco Cathedral is very impressive. It took 109 years to be built and it was built on top of Inca Wiracocha's palace. It has three main rooms, two side rooms adorned with pure gold altars and the main one with a breathtaking silver altar. The cathedral is very ostentatious, because the Spanish thought that decorating it with gold and ...

    The largest lake in South America and the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca is at a height of 3,812 meters. The lake is located in the Andes and is definitely worth a visit for its beauty if nothing else.

    Nazca Lines

    11 reviews

    The Nazca lines in the Nazca desert & 400 km south of Lima, what an amazing sight. I was extremely nervous boarding the small plane, but once airborne the nerves disappeared. From the air I could really appreciate the scale and magnitude of these designs and they are quite a sight.

    Looks like a massive amphitheatre, or pushed down crop circle. This massive terraced structure is kind of mind boggling. People think that it was developed as an agricultural experiment station, allowing the Incas to play with different micro climates and crops, which makes sense as there is so major temperature changes from the top terrace to the middle low one.

    San Blas

    Cute little plaza in the old town with a nice church. Creates a romantic setting in the evening for a stroll, and it is close to a bunch of cafes and bistros
