Day2 : Machu Picchu

Perhaps the most famous of Peru’s landmarks, Machu Picchu was established in 1450 but mysteriously abandoned after only about 100 years and lay undiscovered until 1911. In the morning, the group will board a train at Urubamba and head to this incredible ancient city. Spend the afternoon exploring all that the “Lost City of the Incas” has to offer, including its three main structures, the “Hitching Post of the Sun”, the “Temple of the Sun” and the “Room of the Three Windows.” Machu Picchu is not only designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but is also considered one of the “New Wonders of the Ancient World.” Many of the buildings here have been restored to give visitors an idea of what they looked like in the 15th century. We will Return to Cuzco for the night

Day 3: Machu Picchu to Cuzco

After Breakfast we will begin our tour of Cuzco. Today’s tour starts at the impressive Colonial Cathedral in Cuzco which contains over 400 paintings from the Cusqueña School in addition to an impressive collection of colonial art, including Marcos Zapata’s depiction of The Last Supper displaying Cuy, or Guinea Pig, as the main course. Continue on to visit the Temple of the Sun, whose walls and floors were allegedly once covered by sheets of solid gold. This temple was once the most important religious site of the Incas. From here you will travel to Sacsayhuaman, located on the northern slope of Cuzco. This impressive fortress, which consists of individual stones weighing well over 100 tons, took over seven decades to complete and is a prime example of Incan military architecture. Conclude the day at the Kenko amphitheater, a mysterious limestone formation decorated by intricately carved depictions of mythical entities. Tonight we will dine with a local family at a home hosted dinner
