About Peru

Beautiful Machu Picchu Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Lima

Take in Lima's major sights and attractions on a walking tour of Peru's history-steeped capital. Use free time to explore the dark tunnels of Monasterio de San Francisco's eerie underground cemetery, or seek out Lima's restaurant and night scene in funky Miraflores.

Day 2 Cuzco

Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner.

Day 3 Sacred Valley/Ollantaytambo

The Sacred Valley was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and now contains picturesque villages and impressive archeological sites. Located in the Urubamba Valley, the city of Ollantaytambo is an incredible archeological site and the starting point of the classic Inca Trail trek.

Days 4-5 Cuzco

A World Heritage site set among red-green hills with ruins scattered close by, Cuzco is impressive in every way - be it history, culture, nightlife or architecture.

Day 6 Aguas Calientes

Sitting at the base of Machu Picchu in a picturesque valley, Aguas Calientes takes its name from the numerous hot springs that are dotted throughout the area.

Day 7 Machu Picchu/Cuzco

Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti.

Day 8 Cuzco

Cuzco is South America’s oldest inhabited city, and a whirl of colour, culture, smiles and activity.
