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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cusco: Pisac (in Pisac), Salinas de Maras (in Maras) and Cerveceria Willkamayu (in Urubamba). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Sacsayhuaman, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cusco Cathedral, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and delve into the distant past at Sacred Valley of the Incas.
