Come with us to Cusco! The former capital of the Inca empire high up in the Peruvian Andes is steeped in history.

From Cusco the journey continues to the world-famous ruined city of Machu Picchu, just 100 kilometers away. City guide Saul Palma, a Cusco local, shows us Cusco and Machu Picchu, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
