Nestled in a steep valley in the high southern Peruvian Andes, Cusco is the old capital of the Inca empire, the jumping-off point for Machu Picchu, and studded with great places tostay, all bookable with Culture Trip.
Here, streets are lined with old Spanish buildings and ancient Inca walls – their massive stones pieced together without mortar in organically geometric shapes. There are buzzing indigenous markets, modish restaurants, bars, clubs and beautiful views at every turn. And nowhere in Peru has a better choice of hotels.
