Full day excursion to the Urubamba Valley visiting: The colorful Indian market in Pisac where a mixture of color, tradition will be able appreciated. Pisac is located to the entrance of the Sacred Valley followed by Ollantaytambo. Most people visit Pisac to see the market on Sunday, but there are smaller markets on both Tuesday and Thursday. However Pisac is a pretty village and has plenty of small handicraft shops and is worth a visit on any day of the week as is a good place to buy the local ceramics including a huge and varied collection of hand-painted multi-coloured beads. Lunch in a typical restaurant in Urubamba then we continue with
Ollantaytambo which is an attractive little town located at the western end of the Sacred Valley, considered the older town continuously occupied of the American continent is located at the foot of some spectacular Inca ruins which protected the strategic entrance to the lower Urubamba Valley. The narrow streets of Ollantaytambo, along with their channels that have not varied from the Inca time, evoke their ancestral inheritance, and then finish visiting Chinchero.
Chinchero is a small Andean Indian village located high up on the windswept plains of Anta at 3762m about 30km from Cusco and is believed to be the mythical birthplace of the rainbow. Its major claim to tourism is its colorful Sunday market which is much less tourist-orientated than the market at Pisac. At the end, return to Cusco arriving at 6:30pm approximately at the main plaza.
