The best places to visit in Peru

Mystical Peru is one of South America's most inspiring destinations. Steeped in ancient history, it’s also home to an incredibly diverse spectrum of landscapes, from the peaks of the Andes, to the arid plains of the Sechura Desert, to virgin Amazon rainforest. These landscapes beg to be explored on foot, which you can do by taking the four-day Inca Trail to reach Machu Picchu, searching for Peru's abundant wildlife and bird species in the rainforests and wetlands, or wandering around colonial squares.

Hike the Inca Trail

High up in Peru’s Andes Mountains lies Machu Picchu, the fabled Lost City of the Incas, one of the most spectacular ruined cities in the world and attracting more than a million travellers each year. This is Peru’s stand-out highlight, the top must-see in the country, and can be seen either as a day trip from Aguas Calientes, itself reached by train from Cusco, or by trekking the four-day Inca Trail, one of the world’s greatest hikes.

Lima

Seaside capital

On the face of it, the capital of Peru is a gritty and sprawling metropolis, but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find a vibrant centre, with plenty of atmospheric plazas and bustling cafes among the churches and cathedrals. Lima is made up of several distinct quarters, with the funky beachside district of Miraflores definitely not to be missed – you might just think you wandered into Florida.

Cusco

Gateway to Machu Picchu

A pretty town filled with cobbled streets, Inca ruins and colonial architecture, Cusco is used by many as the gateway to Machu Picchu, but it’s a worthwhile stop in its own right. A number of wide squares, markets and cathedrals give it a European feel, and just by looking up at the surrounding hills you’ll be rewarded with pretty views and the distant outlines of Inca ruins, including the impressive Sacsayhuaman.

Nazca Lines

Pre-Columbian desert geoglyphs

First noticed by pilots flying overhead in the 1920s, the Nazca Lines are one of Peru’s great mysteries. Just how did the huge figures, many representing animals and birds, become etched into the desert near Nazca, and why are they there? While there’s no definitive answer, theories range from ancient rituals to alien invasion. See them for yourself on a scenic flight from Nazca, or climb the observation tower.
