ECONOMIC CUSCO 3 Days / 2 Nights

 

Cusco's Main Square was once the Centre of the Inca Empire, as the four Roads that ran through that Empire joined up at this spot. At the height of the Inca civilization, the Inca Empire extended from what is today Ecuador and parts of Colombia, taking in all of present day Peru and Bolivia and running down to Northern Chile and Argentina.
