Peru > Introductions to Peru
Peru, land of ancient mysteries and vibrant modern culture. Sample several regions on these journeys to truly savor the culture, fashion, history, and tastes of one of the most magnificent country in the world. Many travelers focus on the capital city of Lima and the hearltand of the ancient Inca Empire, centered around Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. If time allows, you might choose to visit some additional regions as well.

Or, perhaps you might choose to float down the Amazon, sampling the tropical delights of the lush jungle, before taking an unbelievable journey through the Andes by train to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, where natives live on floating islands made from reeds. Whichever way you choose to discover Peru, you will surely savor tastes you have found for years to come... and return once more to seek out even more of the flavors which Italy has to offer.
