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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Salinas de Maras (in Maras) and Pisac (in Pisac). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Sacsayhuaman, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cusco Cathedral, take a stroll through San Blas, and explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Precolombino.

To see reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cusco online trip maker .
