Incan Capital: Cusco Stopover

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 324

Experience the very best of Cusco and Incan ruins. Shop for local handicrafts, explore the beautiful Urubamba Valley and have plenty of time to fully appreciate the ancient Incan Capital.


Get right to the heart of a city where Incan, traditional and colonial Peruvian cultures come together, with 3 days in Cusco. While certainly an ideal gateway to Machu Picchu, the former Incan capital offers plenty in its own right to entice you. Museums are dedicated to textiles, contemporary art and of course, the region’s expansive history. Perhaps Cusco’s greatest charms however, are found just walking its streets or wandering the Plaza de Armas, surrounded by the Inca city walls. An organized trip into the Sacred Valley takes you to Chincheros Indian Market, a traditional Andean town surrounded by Inca ruins, and a colonial church built on Inca foundations.

At Goway we are experts at designing personalized itineraries to suit your special interests, tastes and budget. Let us arrange your ultimate travel experience today.
