You've been given advice on transportation as answers on your previous posting. Have a look at the websites mentioned and figure out what is convenient.
Also it would be nice to know if mentioned advices were of any help to you. A follow-up would be nice and polite.

Travel Tips for Cusco

A visit to the Machu Picchu

by vanessadb

My visit to the Machu Picchu, unforgettable and unmissable.... Going to the Machu Picchu from Cuzco means taking a train at 6am, and getting to Aguas Calientes 3 hours later. Once there, you need to take a bus, a 30 minute steep and scary ride to finally get to the Machu Picchu.

You can also of course get there by doing the Inca trail, if you are in shape and have the time to. Once there, the entire world suddenly makes sense... it's astoundingly beautiful, peaceful, magical, serene. Simply indescribable.

After only two hours, we had to head back to Cuzco with the same train because we had organized a one day trip. Don't make that same mistake: I would highly recommend to stay one night in Aguas Calientes and thus have plenty of time to enjoy this sacred site, especially in the morning when the daytrip tourists have not arrived..

Hats

by JessieLang

In general, if you can identify the hat, you can tell if a woman is single or married, and where she comes from.

In the Sacred Valley, hats are white with tall crowns to keep the wearers cool. Higher in the Andes, they wear flatter and warmer styles, ranging from felt "bowlers" to colorful creations the size of a platter.

Single girls wear something completely different. Most of them seemed to be knit stocking caps, sometimes quite long.

Teaser for Huayna Picchu

by El_Sueco

Being in Cuzco, Machu Picchu - South Americas most famous place - of course is on your list of places where you must go! .
Looking on the most common photos you see behind Macchu Picchu the steep, beautiful top of Huayna Picchu - the young mountain (Macchu Picchu = the old mountain).
If you have enough time on Macchu Picchu I recommend you to try to get up on top of Huayna Picchu.
Entry closes at 2 PM and you have to be out at 4 PM. You need 1 hour to get up, and 40 minutes to get down.
The ascent is around 400 m, it is very steep and narrow, but it is worth it! It gives a fine view from a different perspective than the usual. (See other page)

Cool Club

by paddyk7 about No idea of the name

On the corner of the square, by calle Suecia, is an unassuming blue door, if you passed it during the day, you wouldn't think much of it. At night it opens to reveal a cool little club, not that I can remember much of it from when I was there, but I didn't leave til 5, and had a monster hangover on my tour of the Sacred Valley next day.
So, my guess is it's pretty good.

Patiti

by lashr1999 about Patiti

I encountered Patiti restaurant while walking along the Plaza de Armas after a long tour, hungry and looking for a good place to eat. The sound of music and of the people inside drew me in.

The décor of the restaurant is elegant. The back wall is mirrored and the side walls are a tasteful faux green marble. Of note is that some of the walls are actually part of an old Inca palace that once stood in the Plaza de Armas. The tables are covered in fine table clothes and have yellow cloth napkins.

The service in the restaurant is great. After you sit down you are given a free Pisco sour and some bread to have while you wait. Your water is always kept full and the main course was served relatively fast.

The menu at Patiti is varied, they serve both Peruvian and international food such as pasta. I had wanted to try cuy or guinea pig the previous day. However, in the afternoon at a Chiceria I went to I saw what these cute mouse like creatures looked like. I could not bring myself to eat a family pet even though the price for the dish was half what other places charge at around $8. I was actually surprised by the menu prices. I was going to pass the restaurant by since I thought it would be too expensive. However, the main dishes cost about $12. The main dish I ended up choosing to eat was Carapulcra which is a spicy pork stew. The dish was excellent and tasty and beautifully presented on the plate.

All the while, a traditional Peruvian band played Peruvian music. At different times during the day, different Peruvian groups stop by to play their music and sell their cd’s.

The bathroom was clean. However. you could hear noise from the sidewalk through the window which was distracting,

I am glad chance lead me to this restaurant and my frugalness did not dissuade me from entering.
