Cusco is a big town and can be dangerous

Cusco is huge!

Outside of the old twow, or tourist centre, certain areas are really dangerous especially at night. Do not walk from the bus or train station after dark. A cab only cost a couple of soles and it's money well spent.

Do wander around the old town though, San Blas and around is safe and all the network of little streets around the Pazza de Armas is too.

Tradition and modernity

An old woman in traditional dress and the young woman in western clothes. Throw in the alpaca and the inca-designed gutter: you are in the Andes!

Old and new

Can you spot where the Inca stonework stop and where the 'modern' one starts?
