From Cuzco: day at Machu Picchu, optional lunch
A city that has remained intact, mysterious and inspiring
The Machu Picchu site is divided into two main areas. The first, located to the north, is urban. One can still find there the dwellings reserved for the nobility and some religious buildings (temple of the Sun, mausoleum of the Inca ...). The second, facing south, is rural. It is made up of a set of cultivated terraces - giving the appearance of gigantic stairs carved into the side of the mountain - and irrigation canals.
You benefit from an exceptional experience on board the tourist train. Then head to the Sacred Valley, its typical villages and legendary sites. You spend an exciting day in an Andean community. And you will end this stay in style with a visit to the mythical site of Machu Picchu, from which you will leave on board the sumptuous Tourist Train. Magical moments in perspective!

Start with pick-up from your hotel in Cuzco and go to Ollantaytambo station to take the train towards Aguas Calientes. Go to the closest city to Machu Picchu. Enjoy a scenic train journey through the stunning landscapes of the Andes. Admire the views of the jungle and mountains around you from the large windows of the train, which also has large seats.
Board a coach for a 25-minute ride to Machu Picchu. Discover the city of Machu Picchu, built in the 1450s by the Inca emperor Pachacutiq as a holiday residence. The city was abandoned after a century, following the Spanish conquest. It was never found by the Spanish and therefore avoided the destruction suffered by the other Inca sites. Instead, it was gradually covered by the jungle and thus hidden.
Take a guided tour of the site and learn more about the origins of this exceptional citadel and its most important monuments, such as the main square, the quarters of the nobles, the temple of the three windows, the circular towers, the sacred sundial and the cemetery. After the tour, return to Aguas Calientes and enjoy free time to explore the city or enjoy an optional lunch.
