PRE CUZCO & MACHU PICCHU - ST - CASA ANDINA

PRE CUZCO & MACHU PICCHU - ST - CASA ANDINA

Delve into the sacred and mysterious landmarks of the Inca Empire, including famed Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, and other ancient temples, all precisely constructed without mortar

DAY 1 - Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

After flying into Lima International Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to the Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores, a four-star hotel in the heart of Lima.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner on your own in the hotel or in one of the nearby restaurants and then retire for the evening.

DAY 2 - Sunday, May 4th, 2014

Much of the early morning is devoted to the flight from Lima to Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire. After arriving in Cusco and checking into the Libertador Palacio del Inka, you will enjoy free time to acclimate to the elevation (11,152 feet above sea level) and explore a bit on your own.

In the early afternoon, you will embark on a city tour of Cusco, starting with the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, you will admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo that was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most sumptuous temple in the Inca Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Inca stonework.

Continuing on, you will see the splendid Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Inca palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman fortress, your next stop.

Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, the fortress was constructed without mortar like many other Inca structures. Yet the enormous stones (some weighing 200 tons) of the remaining walls fit so tightly that not even a thin blade of grass can slide between them. The craftsmanship is a stunning example of the Inca's sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.

Nearby, you will see other Inca landmarks such as the Temple at Qenquo, named for its zig-zag canal, a shrine dedicated to Mother Earth, and the pinkish stone fortress of Puka Pukara.

After returning to your hotel, you will spend the evening at your leisure. As you will be dining on your own, you will receive a dinner certificate for a three-course meal and drink. The "dine around" certificate can be used at several participating restaurants.

DAY 3 - Monday, May 5th, 2014

Following breakfast, you will drive to Cusco's train station and board the Vistadome Train, which features large panoramic windows for excellent viewing of the passing landscape.

Upon arriving in Aguas Calientes, you will drive to the ruins of Machu Picchu to explore this famous "Lost City of the Incas." Constructed as a royal retreat for the Inca emperor Pachacuti in the 1400s, Machu Picchu was abandoned less than 100 years later, its population probably devastated by smallpox. Because the Spanish conquistadors never found this hidden city, Bingham discovered it largely intact.

Architectural highlights include the Temple of the Sun, designed much like the one in Cusco, several other temples, hundreds of terraces, and a mysterious carved stone situated on a raised platform that towers above the plaza. The stone may have been used for astronomical observations, but no one knows for certain. The Inca had no written language, so there is no record of Machu Picchu's ultimate purpose. Scholars are still striving to uncover clues as to its mysteries.

After visiting Machu Picchu, you will enjoy a relaxing lunch at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge Hotel at the site's entrance, and then board the Vistadome Train for a scenic ride back to Cusco. Upon arriving, you will transfer back to the Libertador Palacio del Inka for the evening and dinner on your own.

DAY 4 - Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

After flying back to Lima, you will transfer to the port of Callao to embark the ship.
