Despite being from Cusco, and living in the Imperial Region all their lives, there are many people from Cusco who still do not know Machu Picchu, which is why recently, the Decentralized Directorate of Culture of Cusco and the Regional Management of Foreign Trade, Tourism and Crafts of Cusco signed an agreement to promote the ‘Expreso Imperial’ program that will allow people from Cusco to visit the Inca city of Machu Picchu for free.
