Hotfoot Sightseeing


The best way to see the sights of a city centre is undoubtably on foot. But how to start? In my book it's a good idea to hit the ground running. In several cities I have headed off in the morning for a jog around the main tourist sights. It has to be the best way to get an overview of the character of a town.

In Cusco I decided to plot a route that took in 10 plazas. Each one joined together by picturesque cobble streets, flights of steps or narrow alleys. Running up the flight of steps to Santa Ana left my bent double gasping for breath. Running back down required care as many of the ancient cobble stones have been worn to a polish by countless thousands of feet. Here's the route.
