Itinerary

Day 1 - May 16
Arrival and Tour of Cusco Archaelogical Sites

After arriving in Cusco this morning, we'll experience the beauty of the capital of the Incan Empire up close, and learn about the history and heritage of the Inca people at nearby archaeological sites. 

We'll begin our tour at the Temple of the Sun, El Koricancha and learn the history of one of the finest examples of colonial architecture built on an Inca temple.  We'll admire the neighboring Convent of Santo Domingo, one of the most noteworthy Spanish colonial buildings of Cusco.  After leaving the convent, we'll continue on to the ancient fortress and temple of Sacsayhuaman park. Shaped like a puma’s head it’s an excellent example of Andean architecture.  Next, we'll explore the remains of the stone labyrinth of Qenqo and see the tower of Puca Pucara. 

Our last stop of the day will be the Water Temple of Tambomachay to discover the source of spring water, before heading back to the city.

Tonight, we'll head to a local restaurant for a delicious dinner.
