Ancient civilizations & modern day life
The genius of the Inca architects is evident in the ruins left standing today. At Machu Picchu, the terrain is so jagged that only 35% of the territory has been examined. The harsh surroundings are strategic to Machu Picchu, lending this sanctuary a fusion of beauty and harmony with nature. Mountain-top views from this ancient citadel are a photographer’s dream. Cusco, capital of the Inca dynasty, was once a holy city. As a result, many splendid styles of architecture are found here. Contemporary Cusco is surrounded by sculpted agricultural terraces from long ago. Our guides reveal the wonders of ancient civilizations, and reveal the Inca influence in contemporary life, too.For more information call or email earl@cruiseforfun.com or 281 362 0777 or 1 888 843 7014 http://distinctivetravelcruises.com
