Surely this stop is on everyone’s radar. You can barely think of Peru without thinking of Machu Picchu. Considered to be one of the seven wonders of the modern world along with Colosseum in Rome and the Taj Mahal in India, this is a sight that is not to be missed. This location is the most well known of the surviving Inca ruins. There are a limited number of tickets for Machu Picchu given each day so make sure you plan ahead as well as plan for inclement weather; it changes quite frequently.
If you subscribe to the “No Pain, No Gain” way of thinking, then you may want to consider seeing the Rainbow Mountains. But this trip is not a Sunday school picnic. To see these beautiful and multi-colored mountains you need to be ready for a challenging hike. The mountains will range in colors from turquoise to magenta to yellow.
While Peru has its fair share of beautiful landscapes, there is also a fair share of city life to explore. Lima is called the King of Cities and has so much to explore within it. There is a rich history to explore in Lima. You can also visit Cusco which is described as the heart of Peru.
While in these cities it may be worth your while to try a food tour. These companies will take you around and show you some of the finest foods to try, and you get to see some sights while doing it.
