Day 1: Cusco – Pisac – Ollantaytambo – Chinchero* – Cusco
We will meet at your hotel, where we will board a vehicle for the drive to the village of Pisac, around 40 minutes from the city of Cusco. In Pisac, there will be plenty of time to explore the handcraft market, before we continue to the archaeological site. At the ruins, our guide will offer historical information, before giving us free time to wander the site independently. Then, we will continue to Urubamba, where we’ll eat a buffet lunch, to give us energy for our next visit: Ollantaytambo. We will climb the terraces to visit the ruins of the Temple of the Sun, and learn a little more about how the Quechua people built their structures. Finally, we will drive to Chinchero*, a village where we will be able to visit the church and admire the paintings, sculptures and altars that speak to the history of the building. Back in Cusco, we’ll say goodbye to our guide and our vehicle will drop us off at a point close to Cusco’s main square, or Plaza de Armas.
