Cusco, also known as the "bellybutton of the world" is a charming place. You will be able to get to experience its architectural beauty, its traditional neighborhoods, the beautiful Plaza de Armas (its main square), as well as its various gastronomical delights. Cusco's main points of interests are the Cathedral, the Temple of the Sun (known as the Qoricancha), the San Blas district and San Pedro market among many others. We recommend that you take the first day to rest and become acclimated to the altitude.
Night in Cusco.
Today we will explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas, an enigmatic place whose beautiful lands and gorgeous landscapes were intelligently taken advantage of by the ancient Peruvian people.
Our first visit will be to Pisac, a greatly important archaeological site whose shape and construction are inspired by a local bird (the Puna partridge). Straight away, we will visit the local market, famous for its original products. In the afternoon, we will go on towards Ollantaytambo, a place that clearly shows how the Incans designed their cities with narrow streets and lovely canals, all in harmony with its natural environment. We will then visit the fortress of Ollantaytambo with its spectacular Incan terraces that will take our breath away, not to mention the spectacular views of the Sacred Valley from them! At the end of the afternoon, we will board the train to our next stop, the town of Aguas Calientes.
Night in Aguas Calientes.
This will be a memorable day during your visit in
Peru, given that you will see one of the Wonders of
the World that all travelers dream of visiting, we

Once in Machu Picchu, you will visit the farming and urban zones, as well as its main temples.

In the Andes, temperature changes too much between night and day. During the rainy season (November-March) we have cloudy days with rain at night. On the other hand, during the dry season (May-September) you can expect very cold nights and warm sunny days.
If coming to Peru, make sure to bring proper clothing. We suggest sunglasses, a sun hat, a polar, gloves, and comfortable shoes for walking. If coming during the rainy season, a raincoat is highly recommended.
We suggest booking your trip from April to September, since sunny and warm days are common during this period. On the other hand, if coming during the rainy season, you'll likely have less crowds than in the peak season.
