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. Most agree that the ticket represents good value. There are four different passes you can purchase. For S/130 you can get a 10-day pass that let's 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, each S/70. Be aware the scheme isn't set in stone and participating sites have a propensity to change. Certain big name attractions (such as the Catedral) have withdrawn from the Boleto Turístico in order to levy their own fees. Regardless, if you want to see sites like Sacsayhuamán and Pisac, you have to buy the ticket, which can be purchased at the Comite de Servicios Integrados Turisticos Culturales del Cusco (COSITUCAv. El Sol 103084/261-465 Ext. 203www.cosituc.gob.pe), open Monday through Saturday 8-5 and Sunday 8-2.
