Peru in 60 Seconds

Perhaps most famous as being the ancient homeland of the Inca civilisation, Peru is is a wonderland of historical treasures and home to some of South America's most glorious landmarks, including the spectacular ancient hilltop city of Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. It also has a wide range of outdoor activities, from trekking in Cuzco to white-water rafting in Arequipa to sandboarding in the Huacachina Deserts, and a distinctive cuisine, including lomo saltado, maize soup, and of course the delicious ceviche on the coast.
