    Day trip into the sacred valley is great. Visiting the many artisan markets. A day at one of the nearby lakes. Visiting some of the many archaeological sites within walking distance of the city. Hose riding and so much more. about 5 years ago

    Cusco is great! The Plaza de Armas is great! There are some really good restaurants in that area. The Temple of the Sun, Qorickancha (or Koricancha) is fantastic! One of my favourite things was the mercados and shops hidden away in the streets. I would sometimes just go searching and i found some fantastic shops and met some incredible people. There is also an artist market with a lot of hand good being sold. I don't think it was very far from the Plaza de Armas. Cusco is just a great city. There are so many colours and interesting people it's just fun to walk around and see what you find. It is one of my favourite cities that I've visited. There is a textile museum close to Qorikancha too but I didn't get the chance to visit it. I'd also encourage you to go up to the Cristo Blanco and see the view of the city. It is breathtaking and amazing. On the way there are neat ruins and another good restraunt. over 4 years ago

    Depends on when you go. In June of each year there a three different festivals: Google Keshwa Chaca, Inti Raymi, and --- I forget the other. Just look up June Peru festivals. There's a great trek to Choquequiaro, not far from Cusco. There are many great hikes/treks in the general area. You might want to visit L. Titicaca while you're there. Etc. etc, etc over 4 years ago

    Hi Lonnie, I think the best thing to do in Cusco is to wander - around every corner you will find markets, cafes and friendly locals. You could spend days just wandering the cobblestone streets. That being said, I would recommend the Maras/Moray day trip that includes a visit to the mountain-side salt flats of Salineras and past fields of alpaca farmers. over 4 years ago
