DAY TRIP TO MACHU PICCHU FROM CUSCO
Experience an incredible visit to the world-famous Inca city of Machu Picchu, as you explore its ingenious architecture, history and what daily life was like for residents, during this day trip from Cusco. It’s the perfect opportunity for first-time visitors, families and individual travelers to make an in-depth exploration of this amazing archaeological site. Depart from Cusco in the morning, with pickup from your hotel and a transfer from the city center to your train station. Then enjoy a scenic, 2-hour train ride, offering stunning views of the mountainous terrain that makes up the area near Machu Picchu. Arrive in Aguas Calientes, the small village located at the base of this famous Inca site, and board a bus for the short ride to this sacred citadel. Completed around 1450, when the Inca Empire was at the peak of its power and influence, the site was left vacant within 100 years of its creation, thanks to the conquest of the Inca people by the Spanish. Though the site today remains abandoned, many believe Machu Picchu to be a key center of spiritual energy. Follow your guide through the main streets of this marvel of ancient engineering. Learn about the site’s history and design as you meander through its town square, key religious sites, elaborate network of agricultural terraces and intricately-designed stone staircases. After completing your guided tour, you’ll have time to explore on your own, taking some time for photos and to absorb the mystic energy of this one-of-a-kind site. After spending a few hours at the site, you’ll return by bus to the train station in Aguas Calientes and then to your chosen train for the trip back to Cusco.
