Peru can be proud of being the cradle of the oldest civilization of both the Americas! Moreover, it is a country having one of the richest historical and archaeological heritage. This can be seen on a big number of Peruvian pre-Colombian cultures. Cusco, which used to be a capital of the Inca Empire, stands out among other cities in tourism since it offers a big variety of trips and other activities.
The nowadays Cusco is a mixture of the Inca constructions with Colonial architecture. It still keeps the majesty of the imperial city, which is comprised of history with modernity, mysticism with adventure and contemporary art with vibrant nightlife. Excepting Cusco, there is a lot to explore around the city too. For instance, you might discover the imposing architecture of the Inca complexes of Pisaq and Ollantaytambo, fill up with energy of the agricultural experimental site of Moray or feel like touching the sky at the New Wonder of the World - Machu Picchu.
