Once you have adjusted to the altitude, visitors will find that Cuzco is a walkable city with steep, narrow streets. Many attractions, restaurants and bars are located within a 20-minute walk of the historic center and Plaza de Armas. Taxis are a popular mode of transport, while ridesharing apps and open-top tourist buses are also available. While Cuzco lacks a sophisticated public transit system, there are a few bus companies that travel around the outskirts of the city. Other options include the "colectivos" which are vans that transport passengers between local destinations and depart when full, rather than running on a fixed itinerary.

North-west of the city center, Koricancha was considered the holiest site in Incan mythology, but it was destroyed by the conquistadors, who built the Santo Domingo church on its ruins. A 15-minute walk from Plaza de Armas, Sacsayhuaman is an ancient site with incredible stonework and stunning views.

Festivals in Cuzco are a celebration of both its Incan roots and Spanish influences. The most famous is the week-long Inti Raymi, a reenactment of the traditional Inca Festival of the Sun, held during the winter solstice, when the streets are filled with folk dancers in elaborate costumes, with live music accompanying the grand procession to Sacsayhuaman. El Senor de Los Temblores is held around Easter, winding through the streets of the historic center to thank the Lord of Earthquakes for saving Cuzco from destruction back in 1650. There are also many religious celebrations throughout the year, including Semana Santa, during Easter, and the Festival of the Crosses in early May.
