Best area to stay in Cusco

Best area to stay in Cusco

Although for many Cusco is simply the nearest town for visits to Machu Picchu, Cusco which the historic capital of Peru, deserves a visit in its own right due to its rich cultural heritage.

 

The best area to stay in Cusco is the historical centre, as near as you can to the Plaza de las Armas or Plaza Mayor, which is the heart and soul of all that happens in Cusco. To the north of the square you will find the San Blas area, which is home to the city´s many artisan workshops and shops and which still conserves all the charm of the old Cusco. It´s one of the most popular tourist areas, although its only pitfall is that you are constantly going up and down stairs which is a common problem in Peru. However, if you don´t have any mobility limitations then it’s a safe and charming neighbourhood which you are sure to fall in love with.

 

Aside from visiting the Plaza de las Armas and touring round the San Blas area, you really must visit the Sacsayhuman ruins, which aside from being a point of historical interest, offers amazing views over the city.
