    The Machu Picchu One Day Package allows you to discover the beauty and magnificence of “The Lost City of the Incas”. Captivating, mysterious, and mystic are some of the adjectives used to describe this great Inca city. Moreover, it is a place filled with peace, energy, and harmony where time seems to stop. For this reason, we recommend you to come and see for yourself why millions of people have chosen Machu Picchu as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World!

    In addition, Machu Picchu is considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. It is the most representative architectural example of Peruvian culture and one of the most important and acclaimed archeological sites in the world. Hence, Machu Picchu is one of the few places in America that was declared both Cultural and Natural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

    Besides, it is located in the region of Cusco, in the Urubamba Province, and on the eastern slope of the Andean Mountain Range. Likewise, it is located 2430m/7970ft over sea level and is nestled in the subtropical zone at the edge of the rainforest. Therefore, it enjoys a benign climate, which is warm and humid. Finally, Machu Picchu, located at the summit of a mountain, harmonizes with the exuberant nature that surrounds it.

    Furthermore, the Machu Picchu One Day Package includes an excursion through the outstanding Inca and Colonial sights in the lovely city of Cusco.

    Cusco was the capital of the Incas until the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. As a result, there are several Spanish constructions, built on impressive walls of ancient Inca buildings. In fact, many of them are considered architectural works of art, such as the Cathedral and Temple of the Sun or Koricancha.

    Finally, UNESCO also included the City of Cusco in the World Heritage List in 1983.
