Peru Travel Tour Highlights
It may come as a surprise that travelers can visit South America in less than a week, but this concise introduction allows people with limited time the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of the history and culture of Peru in just six days. Spend the first two night in Lima and take a full-day tour of the city, which will include the Convent and Church of San Francisco as well as the Rafael Larco Herrera Museum as well as the bohemian district of Barranco. Barranco’s lively, tree-lined streets are brimming with historic mansions, plazas, museums (including the only museum dedicated to displaying permanent works by renowned photographer, Mario Testino), designer boutiques, live music, and plenty of artful flair. Next, you will head to the Sacred Valley via Cusco, visiting highlights including the Incan remains of Incawatana, the Baths of the Ñusta and the circular terraces of Moray. The following morning, gather your things for the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu. Accommodation is at the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, located on a private mountainside sanctuary with miles of trails to explore. Spend the next morning exploring Machu Picchu before taking the Vistadome train back to Cusco, where you will spend two nights. This pleasant town is many visitors’ favorite in Peru. While in Cusco, enjoy some leisure time and touring, including the Sacsayhuaman Fortress, Baths of the Inca and MAP Museum. The final morning, head to Lima to catch your outbound departure flight.
