Machu Picchu Practicalities
To visit Machu Picchu you’ll need to get there using a train and bus and buy tickets to the site that co-ordinate with your arrival time.
For transport, you’ll find all the necessary info here on the The Machu Picchu train, and the The Machu Picchu bus as well as a cost-saving alternative approach: Machu Picchu via Santa Teresa.
Keep in mind that when you buy Machu Picchu Tickets you’ll need to commit to your choice of Circuits and Extra Hikes.
Food is not allowed in Machu Picchu and you only have two options for where to eat up by the entrance. There is an outdoor snack bar with limited options next to the entrance and above the bathrooms. The other option is the restaurant at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, which has more variety and higher quality food. Both are very expensive, mostly due to the location.
