I am aware that the most important reason to visit Cusco is, by far, Machu Picchu, Peru’s archaeological and cultural icon, but as a matter of fact there are other reasons to visit this Andean department.
A lot of travelers ask me what to do and where to go the day they arrive in Cusco. After talking to some Cusqueños as well as remembering my own experience, these are my suggestions on Day 1 here.
Definitely, one of the things you should do upon arrival in Cusco is to buy the BTG or Boleto Turístico General.
That´s it, enjoy Cusco then!
