Peru You have to see it to believe it, to open your eyes and all of a sudden awaken in Machu Picchu, the magical city, that has just been internationally voted as one the new Seven Wonders of the World. It is a dream come true that every living soul should experience. Heir to ancient cultures and a rich colonial tradition, Peru is a magical spot which involves one of the richest biodiversities of Earth. Ten thousand years of history are lived through 180 museums and historical places. While Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Inca empire, the country is also riddled with archaeological sites which are a legacy of even more ancient times, when great civilizations bequeathed a legacy of their art, customs and rituals, their wisdom and skills. Over 40,000 restaurants across the country reflect the diversity of a nation that has mixed its native traditions with the cuisines of Europe, Arabia, China, Africa and Japan. The result unique flavours that make Peruvian cuisine one of the best and most varied in the world. While you are at Peru, don forget to spot the Jaguar. There are a lot of things you can do at Peru you can choose from cultural tourism, adventure tourism, natuer tourism, beach tourism, luxury travel, or simply do all of them at the same time.
