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: Iglesia de Urubamba (in Urubamba), Pisac (in Pisac) and Maras (Salinas de Maras & Moray). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Sacsayhuaman, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take a stroll through San Blas, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia De Santo Domingo.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in December, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
