At 8:00 AM we will pick you up from your Hotel and start visiting the archeological center of Pisac, located about 45 minutes from Cusco by private transport. Pisac will give you an idea of the advance knowledge the Incas must have had in order to realize this architecture; some studies reveal that this was not a fortress, but a kind of “real estate” owned by the Inca Pachacutec, composed of platforms, domestic structures, ceremonials and aqueducts that provided water for agricultural exploitation.
Another good reason to visit Pisac is its traditional market where you can find some unique and authentic memorabilia. At noon we will head to the town of Urubamba where we will enjoy the buffet lunch, a sample of the delicious Peruvian cuisine. Urubamba was one of the main agricultural centers of the Inca Empire.
Currently, the best corn in the world is harvested here and during the rainy season the fruits of the valley are abundant, such as peaches, capuli, quince, strawberries of the highest quality among others.
In the afternoon, we will visit the fortress of Ollantaytambo, which was a strategic military, agricultural and religious center to manage and control the Sacred Valley of the Incas; this is deduced from the constructions that presumably were for agricultural deposits and for military use as watchtowers (probably to protect themselves from jungle ethnic groups). This archaeological site comprises a series of superimposed terraces, showing impressive and large stone blocks finely carved and placed on the upper deck.
After we will board the train to Aguas Calientes to visit Machu Picchu early the next day

First, we will reach Moray; according to the historians Moray constructions were an important agricultural laboratory of the Inca Empire.
Since its platforms are built with their respective irrigation canals and each of one constitutes a microclimate. What is striking is the great difference in annual average temperature between the top and bottom of the depressions, a difference that reaches up to 15°C. (59°F.) In Moray, the Incas created their own microclimate to make plants adapt to this altitude. After this, we will pay a visit to the town of Maras and the salt mines.

It also shows beautiful mansions with shields of noble Indians, reflection of an era of prosperity for the colony. Finally we will arrive at the Salineras de Maras, an impressive salt complex, which was already exploited since Inca times. Nowadays the salt mines are still running and local farmers are still selling the salt, which is very popular. Today, the place is an important tourist destination in Cusco.
