The city of Cusco is one of the most important destinations of Peru. It was the ancient capital of the Inca empire, with its streets and buildings still reflecting its grand historical past. Due to this, the city is known as “the belly button of the world”.
Today, our professional guide will accompany you to discover the best of this Inca city. We will begin by visiting the Temple of the Sun (also called Qoricancha). After, we will visit the treasures of the Basilica Cathedral of Cusco, and then finish by visiting the ruins adjacent to the city; Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pukara, and Tambomachay.
