Long Description: 
Travel with the Grannies to Cusco, a world heritage site, and the former capital of the Inca civilization. At 11,900 feet high, this ancient city was not only considered sacred by the Incas but was a jewel of the Spanish colonial world. The city is considered the arts and crafts capital of Peru. Machu Picchu, at 9,600 feet, was a marvel and the trek to see this ancient city was a challenge when the Grannies climbed it. The city is located in the Andes in an area called the "cloud forest." Surrounded by steep mountains, entire neighborhoods were created. One of the new Seven Wonders of the World - the exploration of this hidden city in the AndesMountains was an unforgettable and magical experience.
