Cuzco, former heart of the Inca empire, oozes colonial charm. Highlights include the imposing Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas and the fortress of Sacsayhuaman perched on a hilltop overlooking the city. The Belmond Hotel Monasterio, your home in Cuzxo, dates back to the 16th century and blends old-world character into its décor.

Overland through the mountains and altiplano on the Belmond Andean Explorer to reach Puno on the shore of Lake Titicaca. Visit the indigenous Uros community, living on floating tortura reed islands, and enjoy views of beautiful Taquile Island set to a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and a shimmering lake. The Belmond experience continues on board as you travel to the ‘White City’ of Arequipa. End your Peru holiday with a bang, staying at the Belmond Miraflores Park.
