Machu Picchu is a centuries-old ruin from the Incan Empire that was originally built in 1450. It's considered one of the new seven wonders of the world, and it's a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built upon a mountain, this ruin showcases Incan ingenuity and craftsmanship. You'll also find yourself in what is essentially a forest of clouds considering how high up this destination is in the mountains.
Lima leans hard into tradition letting you enjoy the rich history of Peru while having all the modern conveniences you'd expect at your disposal. The architecture here is particularly impressive, especially when it comes to cathedrals and churches. The food is also some of the best in the country with world-class restaurants showing off the best that Peru can offer in terms of cuisine.
Cuzco is an iconic city in Peru where you'll be able to enjoy the rich culture of the country. In the rural areas between the city proper and the iconic Machu Picchu, you'll find populations of llamas and their owners hanging about outside like you'd expect someone and their dog to. Additionally, you'll find historic temples and cathedrals throughout town that you won't want to miss.
