Summary:
Cusco was the centre of the Inca Empire. Its cobble-stoned streets and Inca-laid foundation, intermixed with colonial and Renaissance architecture, reveal a dynamic history that today radiates the charm of this beautiful city. It is considered one of the two most beautiful cities in South America, including Buenos Aires city in Argentina.

Our tour will start with a walk around the Big and bustling San Pedro Market, where you will discover the small mysteries of daily local life. A freshly squeezed smoothie made from the most luscious fruit of your choice will be the perfect refreshment while you discover new mysterious smells (of unidentified food-some pleasant, some not so pleasant) mingling with brilliant colors, sounds and people. through the swirling vortex of the market life in San Pedro is a thrilling experience. We will also walk along those narrow streets that still keep the inca architecture design, also visit the Cathedral of Cusco with its amazing collection of paintings, at the end we will visit the Temple of the Sun, the most important temple of the Incas, with an amazing architecture.
