The ancient city of Cusco needs little introduction. One of the oldest cities in the Americas and gateway to Machu Picchu. That being said, it would be a shame to see it as only this. The city is a true pearl in the Andes with its unique colonial architecture on top of Inca remains. The old capital of the Incas and later of the Viceroyalty still stands with all its pride as the ages have only made this city more interesting – a Breathtaking destination in all senses of the word.
