Many travelers to Cusco use the city as a launching pad to hike the Inca trail, visit Machu Picchu and/or explore the Sacred Valley. With so many travel options just outside of the city it is easy to forget that Cuzco has a lot to offer in and of itself. The following Cusco travel guide is our attempt to showcase what the city has to offer in terms of attractions, things to do, shopping, dining, museums and nightlife. In our opinion, you'll want to budget several days to take it all in and acclimatize to the higher altitude if you're thinking of going on hiking excursions afterwards.

This video would not have been possible without www.FunTrip.world who organized the complete trip. Thank you Andrei and David for helping me and for being such great people. During our 2 weeks trip to Peru I've been carrying my backpacked drone everywhere we went hoping to discover some beautiful landscapes to shoot. The place I was waiting for the most was, of course, Machu Picchu. I knew it was not permitted to fly inside Machu Picchu but I was hoping to at least get some distance shots from outside. Unfortunately, one day before arriving, a huge forest fire started near by and made my trip to Machu Picchu obsolete. What I didn't expect though was to find so many amazing landscapes in places we were just passing by. And finally, the three full days we spent in the Amazon rain forest made me forget all about Machu Picchu.I was so impressed by Peru that I don't expect to be visiting such a beautiful country and to meet such wonderful people any time soon.The Race to Record the Ruins / The New York Times
