World’s Best Destinations To Travel Alone

6. Cusco, Peru

Cusco, Peru

The famed capital of the ancient Inca Empire, Cusco has served as a travelers’ mecca for hundreds of years. A place steeped in culture, Cusco is known for its indigenous population—often seen on the streets in their traditional clothing.

Why it’s a great choice:

  • Cusco is a stone’s throw away from the “lost” city of the Incas: Machu Picchu.
  • Home of some of South America’s most fascinating archaeological sites.
