Peru: Cusco

Visit Us

High in a fertile mountain valley at 3,399m and surrounded by the lofty ice peaks of the Andes, the former capital of the Inca Empire and Spanish colonial masterpiece, Cusco, was cut off from the rest of the world until about 100 years ago. Now it is recognised as one of the most enticing, unspoilt cities on the continent. The history running through its veins is exposed in the meticulous masonry of the Inca temples, the baroque intricacy of its golden churches and palaces and the lively markets, fiestas, art galleries, boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants of the present day city. Here you can immerse yourself totally in Peru’s rich cultural mix.

What our experts say

"Since my first visit in 1982, Cusco has both changed and stayed the same. Wise planning decisions mean that the city’s colonial character remains intact. The infrastructure for visitors has improved dramatically, but within the prescribed rules for conservation: gorgeous service-oriented boutique hotels occupy refurbished mansions, first class fusion restaurants sit alongside  street market grills, and you can get chocolate (unavailable in 1982) everywhere…"
