Average Length of Stay
Once you have adjusted to the altitude, visitors will find that Cuzco is a walkable city with steep, narrow streets. Many attractions, restaurants and bars are located within a 20-minute walk of the historic centre and Plaza de Armas. Taxis are a popular mode of transport, while ridesharing apps and open-top tourist buses are also available. While Cuzco lacks a sophisticated public transit system, there are a few bus companies that travel around the outskirts of the city. Other options include the "colectivos" which are vans that transport passengers between local destinations and depart when full, rather than running on a fixed itinerary.

High up in the Peruvian Andes, Cuzco was once the centre of the Incan civilization. North-west of the city centre, Koricancha was considered the holiest site in Incan mythology, but it was destroyed by the conquistadors, who built the Santo Domingo church on its ruins. A 15-minute walk from Plaza de Armas, Sacsayhuaman is an ancient site with incredible stonework and stunning views. Continue north for 20 minutes to find out more about Incan astronomy at the Planetarium. To get a taste of authentic Cuzco, visit the bustling San Pedro Market, a short stroll south-west of Plaza de Armas, where you can browse through local stalls, enjoy a freshly squeezed juice and visit the tamale and empanada vendors for lunch. Learn how the colorful local fabrics are made at the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cuzco, and see art and artifacts at the Museo de Arte Pre-Colombino, all within a couple of miles of Plaza de Armas.
Although pisco sours and roasted guinea pig have put Cuzco on the international culinary radar, Peruvian cuisine is rich and diverse. Many restaurants and eateries can be found around the historic centre, where you can enjoy inexpensive two-course set lunches. The district of San Blas offers plentiful vegetarian options and is a great place to book a hotel in Cuzco. In this area, you will also find bars with outdoor seating where you can enjoy unforgettable sunset views, close to cheap hotels in Cuzco's historic centre. Cuzco is the party capital of Peru, with many bars and clubs within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas. Street vendors and pizza bars stay open late into the night to cater to the party crowd.
Festivals in Cuzco are a celebration of both its Incan roots and Spanish influences. The most famous is the week-long Inti Raymi, a reenactment of the traditional Inca Festival of the Sun, held during the winter solstice, when the streets are filled with folk dancers in elaborate costumes, with live music accompanying the grand procession to Sacsayhuaman. El Senor de Los Temblores is held around Easter, winding through the streets of the historic centre to thank the Lord of Earthquakes for saving Cuzco from destruction back in 1650. There are also many religious celebrations throughout the year, including Semana Santa, during Easter, and the Festival of the Crosses in early May. Every year on Christmas Eve, the Santuranticuy Festival, one of Peru’s largest artisanal craft fairs, is held in Cuzco’s Plaza de Armas.
