Day 3 - MACHU PICCHU - CUSCO
Your private guide will meet you at your hotel early this morning. You will be driven to the train station to board the Vistadome train, for a dramatic train ride to Machu Picchu (6180 feet), the great mountain-top city abandoned by the Inca Empire, reclaimed by the jungle and lost to humanity until its rediscovery in 1911.
It sits on a mountain site of extraordinary beauty, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest. Machu Picchu was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height, with its giant walls, terraces and ramps, which appear as though they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments.
Upon arrival to the ruins, you will have a guided tour of the lost citadel.
Lunch will be provided at the Sanctuary Lodge, after which you will go to Cusco on the Vistadome Train.
Overnight in Cusco. One night, one room (double occupancy), including breakfast, hotel tax and service charge.
