A pilgrimage to Machu Picchu may already be on the top of your list of things to do on a holiday in Peru, but did you know that this ancient country has a vast array of other historical relics and cultural highlights to visit? There are archaeological wonders dotted throughout the country, and traversing the ancient Inca landscape to explore these incredible sites is a bucket-list item for many travellers. But there’s more to a holiday in Peru than history: make sure you visit the urban backdrop of downtown Lima, taste the tried and tested traveller favourite – ceviche, or trek deep into the Andes to explore hidden Peruvian peaks.
