Buses take visitors from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu. The trip takes around 20 minutes and it is not expensive at all. A few visitors prefer to go walking but it is a looong way up...!!! I recommend taking the bus as you´ll walk a lot inside the ruins (not to mention the climb of Huayna Picchu)...

From Cusco, take the train to Aguas Calientes (4 hours) and then the bus. Be careful because you have to buy tickets in advance and they are not sold by the bus driver.
