Britons face a crazy race home after Cyprus was stripped of the travel corridor



Machu Picchu, the Inca citadel that attracts about 1.5 million visitors each year, will reopen on November 1, after a seven-month closure.

This year marked only the second time that Peru’s biggest tourist attraction has closed since 1948; in 2010, it was forced to close during prolonged and torrential storms.

The 125.8 square mile site, which is 7,972 feet above sea level in the Andean mountains, overlooking the Urubamba Valley, will, in principle, limit admission to 675 people per day. The first round of tickets has already sold out. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, there were an average number of daily visitors from 2,000 to 3,000.
