Few places in the world compare to the Seven Wonders of the World. And while Egypt can be dry and Canada can be cold, Peru houses one of the stunning marvels and allows for a temperate vacation spot as well. If you’re considering a visit to an enchanted mountainous area of one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Machu Picchu and Cusco, two ancient and stunningly preserved cities in the Peruvian mountains, cannot be beat.
Machu Picchu alone will leave you absolutely breathless. Not only do tourists have access to countless trails, gardens and paths that weave throughout the glorious mountains, there is also a wide range of foreign birds, stunning butterflies and hundreds of species of exotic animals. This gives tourists a unique glance into the Peruvian lifestyle and far-reaching historically cultural past.
And while many tourists are hard pressed to leave the beautiful mountain city of Machu Picchu, the ancient city of Cusco is another Peruvian location that cannot be missed. As a UNESCO World Heritage City, this stone city provides all the ancient culture of Peru you could possibly imagine. Enjoy the stunning landscape, the unimaginably delicious native cuisine or the lively local people all within the borders of the former capital of the ancient Incan civilization.
Vacation can be a time of relaxation. But while some may sit out on the beach and do nothing, the true exploring vacationer should be inconclusively drawn to Peru. With ancient civilizations and rolling hills, the cities of Machu Picchu and Cusco are the perfect spot for a wild and beautiful adventure
