Its people uphold the colorful fiber-arts traditions of its ancestors, and its cities offer a warm and vibrant energy to those who visit. Whether hiking around the remains of some of the oldest civilizations or enjoying the traditional flavors of Peruvian cuisine in the sky-high city of Cusco, Peru will leave you enthralled and eager to return.
