What to do and Where to stay in
Cusco & The Sacred Valley
Cusco is perfect for exploring on foot and what better way to soak up the atmosphere than to wander around ancient streets amidst bowler-hatted locals with their voluminous skirts, little ones cuddled up in colourful shawls on their mother’s backs.

For those interested in ancient history, there is no shortage of archaeological sites in Cusco and the surrounding areas, including Sacsayhuaman,an impressive citadel surrounded by beautiful scenery, the Inca shrine of Qenqo, with its impressive altar embedded in rock, the Puca Pucara watchtower and Tambomachay, a monument of architectural excellence, considered one of the pillars of the Andean view of the world.
Most visitors do of course, come to see the iconic Machu Picchu, easily reached by train from either Cusco or the Sacred Valley via Aguas Calientes, from where you have a short transfer by bus. There are train options for all, the most popular being the Vistadome and the famous Hiram Bingham, now owned by Belmond (formerly Orient Express), if you are intent on arriving in style.
