Cusco

Capital of the Inca Empire for three centuries, World Heritage-listed Cusco is now a major tourist destination, drawing nearly 2 million annual tourists with its well-preserved colonial architecture and proximity to Machu Picchu.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cusco: Pisac (in Pisaq) and Archaeological Park Ollantaytambo (in Ollantaytambo). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Sacsayhuaman, see the interesting displays at Pre-Columbian Art Museum, delve into the distant past at Sacred Valley of the Incas, and admire the striking features of Centro Historico De Cusco.
