Enjoy today at your own leisure, at your own pace. There’s much to explore in the historic city of Cusco. Get lost in the maze of narrow streets and cobblestones and stumble upon local markets where you can haggle for handcrafted jewellery from makeshift stalls.

Discover the old town and find renovated colonial buildings or admire its art and history in the Museum of Archaeology. Hang out like a local in the bustling square of Plaza de Armas and people watch by the pretty fountain.
