Cusco — At 11,150 feet above sea level, this former Inca capital is typically remembered as the gateway to the Sacred Valley and the lost city of Machu Picchu – yet this cobbled city built upon two once clashing civilizations is an attraction in its own right, buzzing with outdoor markets and museums, ancient ruins, exquisite cuisine and nightlife that lasts until dawn.

Why Go

For the bustling markets and plazas along with the unforgettable excursions to Machu Picchu and other Inca ruins.
