Maintaining a mysterious hold on travelers’ imaginations, Machu Picchu is a bucket-list destination that draws more than a million visitors each year. But the ancient citadel is just one of the many fascinating sites waiting to be explored in this part of Peru. If you’re planning to visit, set aside plenty of time to explore the nearby Sacred Valley as well as Cusco, the former capital of one of the greatest civilizations ever known. Keep in mind that most of your trip will be at elevations ranging from 8,000–12,000 feet, so allow for some time to acclimate to the thin air, if possible. Then, head to these ten spots you shouldn’t miss while exploring the wonders of the Inca Empire. —Deb Hopewell
