Of course Manchu Pichu, Puno at lake Titicaca is super nice, take the Andean Explorer train from Cusco to get there ! Ariquipa is a beautiful city! You can get to Colca Canyon from Ariquipa , that's where you can see the huge condors. Peru is a fabulous country, enjoy!!! over 5 years ago
Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, Saksaywaman, Plaza Mayor, Lima ,Qurikancha and many other places out there to visit. It’s better for contact with any local travel service providers as "Ecuador Green Travel" for getting much enough information. over 5 years ago
While travelling in Peru, most of the major tourist attractions are located in and around the city of Cusco, such as Machu Pachu, Sacred Valley, Saksyawaman, Pucllana, etc. While these are few obvious visit locations that attracts major tourist footfalls, you can always look out for some off the track spots if you want some space and peace. Few tranquil places in Peru where you can just adore the nature are Paracas national reserve, Moray, Ampay National Sanctuary, etc.

Machu Picchu is a given.
Pisac is the MOST amazing hiking I've ever done. Get your own taxi from the village to the trailhead, the bus tours only show you the first couple of ruins. Hiking on your own is when you really get to see the spectacular parts. Is it OK if I just share a blog post on Pisac with all the details, including one of the most memorable places I've ever stayed? http://www.thesoulofajourney.com/travel/destinations/peru/cuzco/pisac-an-incan-adventure/
If you decide to go down to Titicaca, the cheapest way is to take the bus down and the train back. The bus is luxurious and comfortable (use any of the major Peruvian/South American bus companies), and will stop at five different tourist sites that you'd NEVER get to see otherwise, and the scenery from the train is fantastic. over 5 years ago
In general, in Lima you do all connection to Cusco, Arequipa, Puno and Iquitos (main touristical destinations in Peru) on bus or by fligth.
The majority of tourists stays in Miraflores.. a safe and nice district .... I invited you to visit the hostel´s website:
