Things to do in Cusco
The Cusco area has a lot of attractions to offer to our visitors. Here is a list of some of our favourite attractions and activities. We are happy to make tour arrangements for you through reputable local operators and guides. Please consult with us.
Cusco city center - fascinating syncretism
Cusco has a unique blend of Inca and colonial architecture that delights every visitor. Stroll the streets in the center to your heart's content, enjoy the pedestrian zone of the main square and visit local craft shops and markets. We recommend you visit the cathedral, the Jesuit church, La Merced, the Inca museum, the MAP museum as well as the Korikancha and the artist quarters of San Blas to name some of the most interesting local sites.
Cusco for food lovers
Cusco has a good range of restaurants, some with local cuisine, others with internaional cuisine. Some of our favourite restaurants include: La Granja Heidi, El Kintaro, Vegan Shaman, Greens Organic, Inca Grill, Limo, La Cicciolina and A Mi Manera which also offers Andean cooking classes. There are also plenty of coffeeshops around the main square. Some of these restaurants also offer vegetarian and vegan fare. For a good cocktail in a great ambience try the Fallen Angel.
Machupicchu & the Inca sites
Machupicchu and the stunning Inca sites of the Sacred Valley and Cusco have fuelled the imagination of explorers for centuries and are a visitor's highlight on every Peru trip. We gladly assist you in crafting your own tours in the area according to your specific needs.
