Treasurers of Peru and Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu


Enjoy and experience the beauty, culture and history of Peru. Begin your journey in the ancient city of Lima, then fly to Cusco and explore colonial style churches, ancient Inca culture, temples and the amazing Sacred Valley. Along the way, trace the rise and fall of the Inca civilization, culminating with a visit to the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven World Wonders. Travel by bus to Puno, stopping along the way in Andahuaylillas, Racchi and Pukara. While in Puno, located on Lake Titicaca, visit the floating islands of the Uro people, an ancestral society that inhabits a series of artificial islands built with totora, a reed that grows in the lake. Visit Sillustani, a pre-Incan cemetery on the shores of Lake Umayo. Board a plane back to Lima and further explore the city visiting the Barranco and Miraflores districts, the Museo de Osma, the Mario Testino Art Gallery and Larcomar.
