After a flight from Lima to Cuzco, you’ll be escorted to the Sacred Valley, where you’ll spend the next two nights. Relatively unknown until recently, this region is home to small colonial towns and remote villages.
- Pisaq Ruins: a highly photogenic Incan citadel perched on top of a hill with plunging drops on both sides
- Handmade ceramics and jewelry are for sale at the Pisaq Market.
Day 3: Machu Picchu
In the morning you’ll board the train to Machu Picchu. With its beautifully preserved ornamental stonework and 50 burial sites, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is believed to be a ceremonial center of some kind, but its exact purpose remains shrouded in mystery.
- Go the extra (half) mile: Up to 400 visitors per day are allowed to hike Huayna Picchu, a mountain standing 1,200 feet above Machu Picchu.
- No place like it: Hiram Bingham, the explorer who discovered the site in 1911, wrote, "In the variety of its charms and the power of its spell, I know of no place in the world which can compare with it.”
Days 4–5: Cuzco
Nestled in the Andes Mountains, this former Incan capital is now a living museum of Peruvian history, with Incan ruins, Spanish colonial churches, and several art museums.
- Guided city tour: Stops include the city's cathedral, which houses a major collection of colonial artwork.
- Temple of the Sun: Once the most important religious site of the Incas, this temple was, according to legend, at one time covered in gold and filled with priceless statues.
- Plaza de Armas: Shop for textiles, savor gourmet coffee at a cafe, or take in views of the surrounding neoclassical facades.
Days 6–7: Lima
On a guided sightseeing tour of Peru's capital, you’ll see a baroque cathedral that was built in 1564 and now contains the tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. During your free time, you can explore Lima's thriving culinary scene.
