We start the day with a short flight from Lima to Cusco. Explore Cusco on a half day city tour, taking in the best view of the city from atop Cerro Pukamoqo (Red Peak). We will visit the nearby Fortaleza de Sacsayhuamán (Fortress of Sacsayhuamán). This is a colossal structure of enormous stones which have been carved and fitted together in antiquity with incredible precision. There will also be a stop off at the Mercado de San Pedro (Market of St. Peter), which being the city’s main street market will give you an opportunity to get to know the products of Cusco. The sights, aromas, tastes, and colours of this region can be overwhelming- you may just want to sit and watch the world go by, enjoying a hot drink and soaking up the atmosphere.
Our tour will also take in one of the most impressive buildings of Incan Cusco: the Korikancha (the Golden Temple) - a temple dedicated to the worship of the Sun God, whose interior walls were said to have been covered in gold. The tour ends with a stroll through the Cusco Plaza de Armas (Main Square), where you can visit the Cathedral and admire its exquisite vestibules and priceless paintings from the Cusco School of the 17th and 18th centuries.
Tonight we'll enjoy the best combination of Peruvian Novo-andenean dinner and folkloric show.
