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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cusco: Maras (Moray & Salinas de Maras), Pisac (Hacienda Sarapampa, Pisac, & more) and Urubamba (Cerveceria Willkamayu, Iglesia de Urubamba, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Sacsayhuaman, examine the collection at Museo de Arte Precolombino, contemplate the long history of Plaza de Armas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cusco Cathedral.

For where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Cusco trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Cusco are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 39°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
