Getting There

The historic ruins and ancient monuments make Machu Picchu seem almost inaccessible. However, travelling to Machu Picchu is easy when using the well-situated Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport in Cusco, Peru. The famous citadel is located directly outside of the cities boundaries. International travel directly to this airport is limited to few airlines, so many travellers find connecting flights through the Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima, Peru, as the quickest option. Once at the Alejandro Airport, you have the option to use the scheduled tours in order to get to the ruins, or venture on your own through bus systems and rental vehicles.
