Past and present intertwine in Peru beautifully, dramatically. The Incas were world-class builders and thinkers—and the story of their downfall is heartrending. After flying to Lima and on to the old Incan capital of Cusco, wend your way down to explore the fabled Urubamba Valley ruins of Pisac, Moray, Maras, and Ollantaytambo. Then travel by train to Machu Picchu, the crown jewel of Incan civilization, potentially hopping off the rails early to hike the last jungly stretch on the Inca Trail. Return to Lima by way of Cusco, with time to explore both fascinating cities.
