    Peru, the Machu Picchu site reopens with a crazy showThe Inca city can be visited again after the stop due to Covid: it is now safe and increasingly incredible

    The archaeological site of Machu Picchu, in Peru, has reopened to tourism after months of closure due to Covid. And he did it with an incredible show, worthy of one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

    In the collective imagination, Machu Picchu is what remains of an ancient lost city, but it is known for its imposing ruins, but also for the impressive view it has over the Urubamba valley.

    The event was organized by the Minister of Tourism, Rocío Barrios, and the Minister of Culture, Alejandro Neyra, who were joined by several other authorities, from the Minister of the Environment Kirla Echegaray to the governor of Cusco, Jean Paul Benavente, to the Mayor of Machu Picchu, Darwin Baca.

    The reopening ceremony of the site was also an opportunity to confer the marchio “Safe Travels” that Machu Pichu has obtained, as a guarantee of a safe place for tourists thanks to the safety protocols implemented both in the Aguas Calientes train station, where the majority of visitors arrive, and in the restaurants in the area, in the hotels, in the means of transport up to at the entrance to the citadel and throughout the historic site.

    Already in 2019 the local authorities had changed the access rules, allowing only a small number of visitors (675 people per day, 30% less than the maximum capacity) in compliance with rigorous safety protocols to preserve both health and of visitors and workers.

    Only a few days ago the Machu Pichu site obtained another very important recognition: it managed to reduce CO2 emissions, thus becoming the first zero-emission tourist destination in the world.

    The iconic Inca site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the third largest archaeological site in the world, our sites of Pompeii and Ostia Antica.
