Along with the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu not far away, a visit to Cuzco in the Andes - a magical mix of Spanish colonial and precolumbian Inca - is a bucket-list must for every world traveler. And there's a lot to see, which is why the Cusco Tourist Ticket (also known as BTC Cusco) is an excellent idea for visitors, bundling entry fees for the main attractions in and around the city, valid for one to ten days depending on the type, for prices between 70 and 130 soles (currently about 21-38 USD) and providing significant savings over paying for each of them individually. These attractions include:

However, the number of places to visit will vary according to the type of ticket you buy. The BTC is classified into two types of tickets: with a general tourist ticket you will be able to visit all the attractions mentioned above, while with the partial tourist ticket you will only be able to visit some of these places. Here are the details:
General Tourist Ticket Cusco
