Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos

  Cuzco from my window
by SirRichard

Also named Cusco, this old colonial white city with red tiled roofs is probably the most touristy place in Peru (and maybe in all South America).
It deserves a 2-3 days visit, not only for its narrow charming cobbled streets and interesting museums, but also for the many ruins around that can be visited in 1 day tours.
It is also a good basecamp to visit the nearby ruins of Machu Picchu.
