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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sacsayhuaman and Moray. For shopping fun, head to Mercado Central de San Pedro or Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cusco: Pinkuylluna Mountain Granaries (in Ollantaytambo), Complejo Arqueologico Chinchero (in Chinchero) and Piquillacta (in Huarcapay). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Qorikancha, stroll through Santuario Animal de Cochahuasi, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and delve into the distant past at Q'enqo.

For where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cusco road trip app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. In June, daily temperatures in Cusco can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
