Machu Pichu - 7 Days
Validity: Till 31st December 2024
Day 1: Lima
Arrive at Lima Airport from where you will be picked up and transferred to your hotel in Lima. The Peruvian capital is a modern metropolis full of history, currently undergoing an exciting process of cultural and economic changes.
Day 2: Lima - Larco Museum & City Tour
Breakfast. Enjoy a tour of Lima’s old town, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site packed with fascinating historical buildings. Visit the Larco Museum, housed in a beautifully restored vice regal mansion built on a pre-Columbian pyramid in the traditional Pueblo Libre district. The museum boasts the world’s most complete pre-Hispanic collection of gold and silver objects and pieces of erotic art. Then visit Casa Aliaga, a colonial mansion granted in 1535 by chief conquistador Francisco Pizarro to Jeronimo de Aliaga, one of his captains. This is the only house from that time still owned by the same family. Tour colonial downtown, where you can appreciate the grandiose architecture of the Spanish Empire and Lima’s amazing 16th century Cathedral which took more than 80 years to complete. Return to the hotel.
Optional: Magical Water Circuit + Dinner Show. This is the largest fountain complex in the world, with 13 distinct fountains. Enjoy the colourful laser light program synchronized with music making the fountains sparkle as the water flows in unique patterns and shapes.
Day 3: Lima - Cusco City Tour and Archaeological Sites
Breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your flight to Cusco. Once in the city a transport service will take you to your hotel. In the afternoon, enjoy a guided tour of the former capital of the Inca Empire. Visit Santo Domingo Convent, a large Renaissance-baroque complex, which was built over the Inca Coricancha temple, which was dedicated to worshipping of the sun. Its foundations are still prominent. Visit the imposing Cathedral in the Main Square. Visit the remains of the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, for a stunning panoramic view of Cusco, and see the ruins of the temple and amphitheatre of Qenqo, where the Incas practised agricultural rituals. Visit Puka Pukara (‘Red fortress’ in Quechua) an Inca military complex located on a prominent hill. Return to your hotel.
Day 4: Cusco - Maras - Moray - Cusco
Breakfast. Head along the Sacred Valley towards the archaeological site of Moray, (approximately one and half hrs away). As with many Inca ruins, its exact function remains a mystery. Continue to *Maras, where thousands of small salt ponds provide work to help feed many local families. Return to your hotel.
*From December to March (rainy season), Chinchero, the town of Maras and chicherias, is visited instead of the salt mines. In these months, you can replace this tour with a visit to South Valley.
Optional: Visit to the Planetarium.
Day 5: Cusco - Machu Picchu - Aguas Calientes
Breakfast. Check out. Transportation service will pick you up and transfer you to the Ollanta Station to board the train to Aguas Calientes, the nearest town to Machu Picchu. Following a scenic journey through dramatic Andean landscapes, arrive at the station and board a coach for a 25-minute ride to Machu Picchu. The ‘Lost City of the Incas’ is believed to have been built in the 1450s by Inca Emperor Pachacutec as a holiday retreat. But within a century the city was abandoned following the Spanish conquest. The Spaniards never found it and it was slowly swallowed up by the jungle and hidden from destruction. A guided tour explains the origins behind this awe-inspiring citadel, presenting its most prominent landmarks. *Lunch included. Return to Aquas Calientes and check in at your hotel.
*Lunch time could vary depending on the entrance to the citadel.
Day 6: Aguas Calientes - Cusco
Breakfast. Today, you can optionally return to Machu Picchu. You may discover the views from Huayna Picchu, 360 metres above Machu Picchu with an underground temple complex; and from Inti Punku, which offers even better views from about 390 metres above the citadel.
Another option is the Inca Bridge, a secret military trail, which controlled the access to the citadel. In the afternoon, transfer to the Aguas Calientes station and take the train back to Ollanta station. From here you will be transferred to your hotel in Cusco. Check in.
**Kindly remember to purchase your tickets before your trip due to the limited capacity of the citadel. Entrances are subject to availability.
