Make sure to walk around in the various plazas&visit the historical sites.My favorite hang out at night was a place called Ukukus:live peruvian bands playing,sometimes dance shows or theater performance.On the same street, if you continue walking up, there is a little lady who makes the best sandwiches ever!she is there all night! Make sure to go to San Blas artisans crafts and beautiful just to walk! Jack's is a very nice breakfast place in that area.

Sacsayhuaman ruins

recommendation by fer

Sacsayhuaman is an ancient Inca ceremonial center, which is still used today to celebrate the summer solstice (June 21), overlooking a spectacular open area with some walls built with huge blocks of rock (some 130 tonnes) perfectly assembled. It could be a strength, but also a place of worship the Sun God The energy released where they perceive even the most agnostic. You can easily walk from Cusco, or organized tour. Should pay the full tourist ticket, visiting other ruins. Do not miss!

Inca stonework

recommendation by fer

Inca architecture is world renowned. Small-scale methods cut large blocks of rock which united without cement. And all with seismic system. Perfection can be seen in the alley Hatun Rumijoc of Cusco, with the stone of twelve angles! perfectly encased in the original wall. Other examples are in the streets of Loreto and San Augustine.
