The ancient capital of the Inca Empire is a magical place that combines the best of the past and the present. But to enjoy your city tour to the fullest, it is essential to take some essential items with you. Here is a complete guide on what to bring on your visit to Cusco.

1. Identity Card or Passport: Your identity card or passport is essential. You will need it to check in at your hotel and buy tickets for tourist sites. 

2. Tickets and Reservations: Make sure you have all your tickets and reservations printed or on your mobile device. This includes tourist site tickets, tour reservations, transportation tickets, and hotel confirmations.

3. Layered and Comfortable Clothing: The weather in Cusco can change quickly.

4. Comfortable footwear: Cusco has many cobblestone streets and hills, so good walking shoes are a must.

5. Sun protection: Although Cusco is at a high altitude, the sun can be very strong. Do not forget:

6. Rain Poncho: The weather in Cusco can be unpredictable, and rains can appear at any time, especially between November and March. 

7. Lightweight Backpack: It should be comfortable enough to carry all day and roomy enough for your essentials.

8. Water and Snacks: Stay hydrated and bring some light snacks to keep your energy up during city hikes.

9. Camera and Batteries: Carry your camera with charged batteries and, if you prefer to use your smartphone, be sure to bring a power bank.

10. Insect Repellent: Although not as necessary as in the jungle, it is a good idea to carry insect repellent, especially if you plan to hike outside of Cusco.

11. Cash: Although there are many ATMs, it is a good idea to carry some cash for small expenses, tips, and emergencies. 

12. Plug Adaptor: In Peru, the plugs are type A and C. If your devices have a different type of plug, you will need an adapter.

13. Maps and Guides: Having a physical map of Cusco and a tourist guide can be very useful, especially in areas with limited cell phone signals.

14. Good Humor and Curiosity: Of course, don’t forget to bring a positive attitude and a willingness to explore. Cusco is a city full of history and charm, so be prepared to marvel at every corner.

Extra Tips:

Hydrate well: Cusco’s altitude can affect you, so drink plenty of water.

Rest well: Take your time to acclimatize and avoid altitude sickness.

Respect the local culture: Cusco is a city with a rich cultural heritage, so be respectful of local customs and traditions.
