Discover Peru's landmark attractions - amble along the cobbled streets of Cuzco, visit Machu Picchu, cruise out on Lake Titicaca and explore the sprawling markets of La Paz.
Days 1-2 Cuzco
Welcome to Cuzco, the epicentre of traditional Peruvian culture. A great town to explore on foot, discover the city's colonial churches and museums or make for the ancient Inca ruins peppering the surrounding hillsides.
Day 3 Sacred Valley/Ollantaytambo
Travel through the lushly terraced Sacred Valley, stopping off en route at a local village to gain insight into the lifestyles and customs of Peru's rural population. Head to the ruins of Ollantaytambo for a lesson in Inca urban planning and spectacular views across the landscape.
Day 4 Aguas Calientes
Travel by train along the Urubamba river to Aguas Calientes.
Days 5-6 Machu Picchu/Cuzco
Rise early for the chance to watch Machu Picchu's imposing structure emerge from the mist in the morning light. Learn about the sight's history on a tour with a local guide, then return to Cuzco for some further time getting to know this charming colonial city.
Days 7-9 Puno/Lake Titicaca
Arrive in Puno and get ready for the next few days of adventure. Resting 3,800 m above sea level, Lake Titicaca is the world's highest navigable lake. Cruise out to the impressive floating villages on the Uros Islands - a truly novel way of remaining beyond the reach of hostile tribes!

Days 10-11 La Paz
