Travelers with an interest in history can find a plethora of sites to visit throughout the world. Here is a list of some of the top international historic sites:
1. Machu Picchu - Located atop a mountain in southern Peru, Machu Picchu was a major cultural center for the now-extinct Inca civilization. It is only accessible by train or a four-day trek.
2. Giza Pyramids – Found in Egypt, these famous pyramids are more than 3000 years old. How the Egyptians managed to build these structures so precisely remains a mystery to historians. Visitors to Giza can also view the Sphinx.
3. Angkor Wat - This ancient Cambodian city served as the center of the Khmer Empire, which once ruled all of Southeast Asia. Angkor Wat offers travelers a look at some of the world’s most amazing temples. To see them all, it is best to buy a three- or five-day pass.
