Peru itinerary - suggestions welcome!

Jump to last reply

We have three weeks (Aug 24 - Sept 14) in Peru, and I continue to absorb all the wisdom and advise from fellow Foderites' experience....
After landing late in Lima, and staying there overnight, here is our first attempt at an itinerary that we hope will allow us a glimpse of Peru's culture and history. We do not plan to hike the full Inca Trail (camping/hiking) but will be looking for lots of day hikes and adventures. We do not really wish to go to the Amazon area, and with our limited time and desire to stay a little longer in areas will not be able to visit the Northern area either.
Here goes:
4 nights in Cusco (early morning flight from Lima)
3 nights Sacred Valley (most likely Ollyantaytambo)
3 nights Puna/Lake Titicaca (including one night homestay)
4 nights Arequipa (includes overnight trip to Colca Canyon)
3 nights Nasca (hopefully also to visit Paracas Reserve)
3 nights Lima

Too much or too little time in a particular spot? I think we will take buses between places (except flight from Lima to Cusco), but still researching that area. We prefer to not switch hotels too often, but this is our first South American trip after many trips to europe, so realize we may need to change our habits!
Any thoughts or suggestions welcome!
