The Inca citadel is one of the most desired places to visit in the world.
Machu Picchu was crowned as “Top Dream Destiny 2018” in the first Virtuoso Travel Dreams Tournament, where it competed with 16 top destinations in the world.
Peru.com said that in this way, the Peruvian Inca citadel stands before international eyes as one of the most desired places to visit in the world.
The competition lasted three weeks where four stages of voting took place. “Our imposing historic sanctuary exceeded destinations such as the Swiss Alps, Paris, Greece, Tuscany, and Galapagos, among others”, informed Peru.com.
The announcement of the winners was made through the Virtuoso Life blog: “The Inca citadel of the 15th century is a worthy champion, with its imposing green mountains, dazzling labyrinths, squares, terraces, and temples”, they wrote.
This award comes too with the help of the promotion Promperú carried out. They publicized the competition and encouraged travelers to vote for Machu Picchu. “Thanks to this achievement, Machu Picchu will have greater exposure and a special recognition in the next edition of Virtuoso Life magazine”, Peru.com considers.
It’s not the first time that Machu Picchu has led several lists that classify it as one of the best places to visit and a destination that can’t be missed. Recently, it was also voted on Instagram as one of the world’s wonders.
Virtuoso is a network of the best luxury travel agencies in the United States, with more than 17,500 advisors worldwide and it is the first time that the tournament has been held.
