Cusco, Peru Travel Itineraries and Places to Stay

Until the arrival of the Spaniards in 1532, Cusco (elevation 11,152 feet) was the center of the Inca Empire and is the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent.

Many of the city streets are lined with Inca-built stone walls and crowded with the Quechua-speaking descendants of the Incas. Throughout the city, one can appreciate the syncretism of Inca and Catholic symbols, constructions, and beliefs.


"We had an incredibly wonderful time in Peru."

The escorts and guides were excellent. We especially enjoyed our guide in Cusco and environs. Thanks so much for a great itinerary. My sister may return soon to bring her daughter! Our deepest appreciation to Lost World Adventures. - Josephine (2017)
