The night we arrived we went to a great restauarant called Cicciolina. It was located a few blocks off the Plaza de Armas on the second floor of an old colonial building. We sat at the bar and had a few tapas including shrimp encrusted in quinoa and a yummy cheese platter. The ambiance was great and the food very good!
Happy to be done with travel arrangements, we spent the rest of the day walking around the city. First we hiked up to the Saqsayhuaman ruins and over to see the Cristo Blanco that overlooks the city. It was a clear day and the view was stunning!
Afterwards we walked throughout the city stopping at many old churches, ruins and shops. We went back to our hotel to watch the sunset from our terrace. It was such a nice and relaxing day that was much needed, especially because our long journey to Machu Picchu began the very next day.
