Cusco was the center of the vast Incan Empire. It is the oldest continually inhabited city in the Americas. Cusco is such a unique city! The architecture of Cusco is a blend of ancient Incan walls that have medieval Spanish Barroque churches built on top of them. There is no other place like Cusco, the Belly Button of the World.
After we pick you up from your hotel in our vehicle, we will start by visiting the impressive CUSCO CATHEDRAL which is located on the Plaza de Armas (the main square). Then we will visit the QORICANCHA, the ancient Incan Temple of the Sun, which was the center point of the vast Incan Empire. It is said that the walls of the QORICANCHA were covered in sheets of gold during Incan times. Next we will leave the city in our comfortable van, and head up to the mountains directly above Cusco. There we will visit the sacred ceremonial sites of SACSAYHUMAN, QUENQO, PUCAPUCARA and TAMBOMACHAY. Also, along the way, we will stop by craft centers featuring handmade weavings made of alpaca and vicuña, exquisite silver jewelry, and other fascinating items. Finally, we will return to the center of Cusco and drop you off at your hotel.
