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.
Let the collections at Museo de Arte Precolombino and Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco capture your imagination. Escape the urban bustle at Horseback Riding Tours and River Rafting & Tubing. Venture out of the city with trips to Moray (in Maras), Complejo Arqueologico Chinchero (in Chinchero) and San Pedro Apostol de Andahuaylillas (in Andahuaylillas). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Tipon, contemplate the long history of Sacred Valley of the Incas, browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado Central de San Pedro, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

Lima

Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
San Isidro and Casa de Aliaga will appeal to history buffs. Discover out-of-the-way places like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Museo MATE. Step out of Lima to go to Huaral and see Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay, which is approximately 2h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at MALI - Museo de Arte de Lima, steep yourself in history at Huaca Pucllana, take an in-depth tour of Museo Larco, and pause for some serene contemplation at Museo Convento San Francisco y Catacumbas.
