Offering access to 16 of Cusco's best-known tourist attractions, the Boleto Turístico (tourist ticket) is the all-in-one answer to your tourism needs. There are four different passes you can purchase. For S/130 you can get a 10-day pass that lets you visit all 16 sites in the city and around the Sacred Valley. Alternatively, you can opt for one of three amended circuits outlined in the Boleto Parcial (partial ticket), each S/70. Although always subject to change, the participating sites have remained the same for some time. Certain big-name attractions (such as the Catedral) have withdrawn from the Boleto Turístico to levy their own fees. Regardless, if you want to see sites such as Sacsayhuamán and Pisac, you have to buy the ticket, which can be purchased at the Comite de Servicios Integrados Turisticos Culturales del Cusco (COSITUC) (Av. El Sol 103 084/261–465 www.cosituc.gob.pe), open daily 8–6.
