We liked Avenida El Sol in Cusco - nice place to walk with multiple attractions - museums, theaters, and restaurants. Festivities in fact starting at the Avenida, just before the performers enter the Plaza de Armas.

Busy street, lots of places to eat and drinks - close to all the banks too if you need an ATM. Right in the heart of Cusco, very nice for a wander around

Try walking all the avenue until you get to Centro Histórico. You will be able to see the Convento de Santo Domingo and some governmental buildings.

Stayed at a hotel on the strip, its the main avenue going directly into plaza de amras. The street itself has ice cream shops, bakerys, cafes etc.
