Exploring the Urban Sector of the City in the Sky


Much like cities today, streets in the urban sector of Machu Picchu were lined with residential homes separated into distinct neighborhoods. The upper town housed the royalty and a lower town was home to the lower class or common folk. Built on a steep hill, there was a large number of pathways, stairs and other passages which made access across the entire urban sector possible.

What UNESCO sites have you visited?

As we explore different parts of the world, we do try to make it to as many UNESCO sites as possible. One of the most unique UNESCO sites that we have visited was Machu Picchu in Peru. Machu Picchu is also listed on most of the various "wonders of the world" listings.

We checked out of our hotel rooms and were on our walk in the pouring rain to join the line of people waiting for the bus that would take us to Machu Picchu - all by 3:45 AM on a January morning in 2018. Success - we were #5, 6, 7 & 8 in line for the first bus which left at 5:30 AM. Although no one was allowed to enter Machu Picchu until 6:00 AM, it was amazing to see the constantly expanding crowd. Even though it was a gloomy, rainy day, it's a day we'll never forget!
