A symbol of the Incan civilization, the abandoned city of Machu Picchu represents a must-see on a Peru vacation.
Escape the urban bustle at Santuario Historico de Machu Picchu and Los Jardines de Mandor. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jardin Botanico en Machu Pichu and Samay Spa. Explore Machu Picchu's surroundings by going to Zipline (in Santa Teresa), Siete Tinajas (in Quillabamba) and Ruinas de Choquequirao (in Cachora). There's lots more to do: get great views at Intipuncu, pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia Virgen Del Carmen, explore the ancient world of Choquequirao Archeological Park, and make a trip to Plaza Manco Capac.
