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.
Sacsayhuaman and Moray will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Horseback Riding Tours and Montana de Siete Colores. Get out of town with these interesting Cusco side-trips: Complejo Arqueologico Chinchero (in Chinchero), Piquillacta (in Huarcapay) and San Pedro Apostol de Andahuaylillas (in Andahuaylillas). There's still lots to do: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, delve into the distant past at Q'enqo, and contemplate the long history of Tipon.
