Far-flung Peru conjures up evocative images of ancient cities, lonely mountains and all the drama of a once-mighty civilisation.
The jewel in the crown of Peru’s historical treasures has to be the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, high in the Andes Mountains. But there’s much more to discover, from the northern city of Chan Chan, the largest pre-Colombian city in the Americas, to the puzzling Nazca lines etched in the desert floor further south. Putting history to one side, Peru encompasses a huge swathe of Amazon Rainforest where you’ll encounter a dizzying array of wildlife. Head high to experience the otherworldly landscapes around Lake Titicaca, or hit the capital city Lima to make the most of Peru’s cutting-edge restaurant scene.
