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.
Popular historic sites such as Sacsayhuaman and Plaza de Armas are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Cusco side-trips: Maras (Moray & Salinas de Maras) and Archaeological Park Ollantaytambo (in Ollantaytambo). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Centro Historico De Cusco, delve into the distant past at Tipon, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Qorikancha, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cusco Cathedral.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. In August in Cusco, expect temperatures between 70°F during the day and 36°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
