Advice on Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I will be flying to Cuzco for a trip to SV and MP in July.. We plan to go directly there to acclimate to the altitude and will visit Cuzco after we see MP. What is the best way to get to the SV from the airport? We were planning on staying in Urumbamba and using it as a base to see the other towns.
Can we buy train tickets to AC the day we want to travel to MP or is it recommended to buy them in advance? Are there limits to the size of our luggage on trains, buses or inter-country flights?
Finally, any thoughts about how to layer clothing or the best types of shoes? How cold do you think it will get at night?
