    Upon arrival, our representatives will meet and escort you to your hotel.

    Day 2: Lima
    Breakfast. Start with a panoramic city tour of Colonial Lima, including a visit to the Main Square, located in the heart of downtown to view the Government Palace, the Town Hall, the Bishop's Palace with its beautiful balconies and the Cathedral of Lima, where you will visit inside. Its outstanding features are the choirstalls, the Churrigueresque Chapel of the Immaculate, the main altar and a Christ made of carved ivory. On the right is the crypt with remains of conqueror Francisco Pizarro. You will pass by the church and convent of San Francisco, considered to be the most important religious monument of Lima, built in 1542 in Baroque style and consecrated in 1673. Your drive through Lima will pass by several Colonial squares, churches and mansions, then you will continue to the Modern Districts of San Isidro and Miraflores, for a glimpse of life in this huge city, as well as its beautiful parks, modern buildings and great ocean views.(B)

    Day 3: Lima - Cusco
    Very early this morning you will board a flight to the imperial Peruvian city of Cusco. Upon arrival in Cusco, mid-morning, transfer to your hotel. Take the remainder of the morning to nap or relax as you adjust to Cusco's high altitude. In the afternoon your guided tour of the Inca Royal City of Cusco starts in the very impressionable Central Square, known as the "Plaza de Armas," which is surrounded by a beautiful stone arcade. In the Plaza is the Cathedral, which is exceptional because of its contrasts of styles. The outside façade is in Renaissance style, in contrast to its Baroque and plateresque style of its interiors. The Church of the Society of Jesus, (commonly known as the Jesuits), is highlighted by its carved stone façade and its large alter carved in cedar, plated in gold. The Covent of Santo Domingo was built above the most important Inca Temple, the Temple of the Sun, or "Koricancha," as it was known in the Inca language Quechua. Gold laminas or sheets covered the original Inca Temple walls. Near the City of Cusco, you will visit the extraordinary Inca Fortress Sacsayhuaman, made up of three gigantic terraces, superimposed in a zigzag form, and surrounded by enormous walls of rock, some of which are up to 300 meters in length.Q'enqo, was a religious centre formed by a singular flowering of calcareous rock. It has underground galleries and a semicircular amphitheatre with a series of stone seats. Puca Pucará or the "Red Fort" was military base made up of stone stairways, terraces, and walls. Nearby is Tambomachay, well known as "Baths of the Incas", a place dedicated to the cult of the water, formed by aqueducts, channels and small cascades worked in the rock. (B)

      This Inca Trail is without a doubt the most picturesque hiking track in the world. It is flanked by exquisite natural beauty and unforgettable landscapes. Walking along this old Inca trail, you will have the opportunity to visit sites that were never discovered by the Spaniards. Partially covered by vegetation, you will have the sensation of walking with the Incas. Definitively, the Inca Trail is one of the most amazing Inca heritages. It is part of an extensive road system stretching over more than 23,000 kilometers that integrated the whole Inca Empire, which extended across southern Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, reaching the centre of Chile and north of Argentina. The splendor of these landscapes and the engineering feats of these archaeological works lead the traveler to ponder upon the highly intellectual and spiritual development of the Inca civilization that managed to maintain perfect harmony between scientific knowledge and nature. This trail has a certain degree of difficulty, depending on one’s walking abilities, but is well worthwhile when one enters Machu Pichu through the “Sun Gate”..
