What is the best time to do a Walking Tour in Cusco?

The best time to do a Walking Tour in Cusco is during the dry season, which runs from April to October. During this period, the chances of rain are lower and temperatures are warmer and more pleasant for walking. In addition, during the dry season, skies are usually clearer, which means you are more likely to have clear views of the beautiful landscapes of the city and its surroundings.

What is the climate like in Cusco?

The climate in Cusco is cool and dry for much of the year, with daytime temperatures ranging between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. However, due to the altitude, Cusco has a wide temperature variation between day and night, with nighttime temperatures that can drop below 5 degrees Celsius.

The climate in Cusco is divided into two main seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. The dry season extends from May to October and is considered the best time to visit Cusco due to its sunny and dry climate. The rainy season extends from November to April and is more humid and rainy, especially during the months of January and February.

What type of footwear and clothing is recommended for a Walking Tour in Cusco?

For a Walking Tour in Cusco, it is recommended to wear comfortable and sturdy shoes, such as hiking shoes or hiking boots, which provide good support for the feet and ankles. The streets of Cusco are cobblestone and can be quite steep in some areas, so a good grip on the soles of the sneakers or boots is important to avoid slipping or accidents.

As for clothing, it is advisable to wear clothes that allow you to adjust to temperature changes, as temperatures can vary significantly during the day. During the dry season, mornings and evenings can be cool, while during the day it can be very hot. It is recommended to wear a light jacket, a short-sleeved shirt and comfortable pants.

It is also recommended to wear a hat or cap for sun protection and sunglasses to protect the eyes from UV rays.

What does the 12 corners stone mean?

The Stone of the 12 Angles is a famous stone found in a wall in the historic center of Cusco. The stone is known for its precision carving and for fitting perfectly with the other stones in the wall.

The Stone of the 12 Angles is considered an impressive example of Inca construction technique and is a symbol of the cultural and historical heritage of the region. It is believed that the stone dates back to the 15th century and was carved during the reign of the Inca emperor Pachacutec.
