Machu Picchu and the new rules: all you need to knowAll the people who plan to visit Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the modern world, must know that from 1st January 2019 the rules of access to the Inca Citadel have changed. Its architecture is an exceptional testimony to the use of natural raw materials with huge walls, terraces and ramps that seem to have been carved into the rock of the mountain slopes.
The Office of the Ministry of Culture of Cusco, to safeguard this World Heritage Site, has introduced important innovations. The first concerns the maximum stay of tourists: 4 hours from their entry to the site. The visits will be divided into two major shifts: the first one, from 6.00 to 12.00, while the second one from 12.00 to 17.00 (local time). The second rule provides for the advance purchase of tickets with an indication of the time of entry.
The goal is that these directives regulate more the large flow of tourists who each year visit the site in order to preserve as long as possible one of the most famous cultural places in Latin America.
