Cusco City & the Incan Empire

In the morning, your tour guide and driver will meet you at your hotel to begin your private city tour of Cusco. You will visit the well-known and beautiful temple of Sacsayhuaman, which continues to be a very important religious and ceremonial site for the Incan culture. You will be amazed by the ingenious architectural achievements of the Incan civilization and impressed when imagining the feat of moving and fitting each uniquely shaped stone, weighing some 70tons, so perfectly together without mortar that not a blade of grass could pass between them. As part of your city tour, you will also visit the Cusco Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site, located in Plaza de Armas. Here you will see many holy Christian artifacts and artwork derived from the ‘Escuela Cuzquena’ (Cuzco Art School). Your tour will then take you to the Temple of the Sun, ‘Qoricancha,’ located on the main Avenida El Sol (Avenue of the Sun). This Incan site was one of the most worshipped and respected temples of the city. Finally, you will experience local daily life at the San Pedro Market, where you will see a wide variety of goods including, gifts, crafts, clothes, meats, juices, fruits and vegetables. You will then return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at your leisuure.
