I would suggest looking at some of the trips travel groups like GAP Adventures.com have on their websites. Look at the itineraries they follow.

Go to certainly to Macchy Picchu, Cuzco.
Most people skip north Peru, for me this was the most beautiful part of Peru. Go to a village called "Tingo". There are many recently discovered ruins, not yet described in travel guides...

Puno for the lake Titicaca, Ica for the sand boarding and dunes, you live in an oasis, nazca for the lines, cuzco macchu picchu, miraflores lima for a taste of the capital, iquitos for the amazon, amaxing place, have to fly tho, not too expensive however.

All amazing places. My favourite, The amazon rainforest and Iquitos, something you will never experience anywhere else. Pink dolphins, snakes, tribes, birds that you cannot imagine and the noise of the jungle that is SO loud that you will never forget. Do a trip from iquitos, well worth it.

You might visit to Peru Southern: Lima/Pisco/Ica/Arequipa/Puno/Cusco; every by road, by bus. It´s a wonderful trip safe and cheaper.

Greetings.

achu Picchu

Machu Picchu
How to Get There
By land: The only access to the citadel is by rail from
Cuzco, 110 km (68.3 miles) to the Machu Picchu Pueblo
station. Travel time is between 3 to 4 hours, depending
on the type of train service. The bus ride from the
Machu Picchu town (formerly Aguas Calientes) up to the
archaeological site takes 20 minutes.
Lodging
The town of Machu Picchu offers budget and three-star
hotels. At the entrance to the sanctuary, there are rest
rooms, telephone booths, a fast food restaurant and a
hotel.
Activities
Archaeology, trekking, photography, mysticism, animal
and plant spotting (excellent area for orchid lovers),
thermal spirngs, and shopping for arts and crafts.
Minimum Length of Stay
At least one day to visit Machu Picchu and five to seven
days to visit other attractions between Machu Picchu
and the Inca Trail.
The Inca Trail requires three to four days to walk its 39
kilometers, and a total four to five days to include
transport and visit to Machu Picchu.
Recommendations
An overnight stay in the area is suggested. Wear a
poncho or raincoat during the rainy season, and in the
dry season bring a hat, insect repellent and sunscreen.
Visitors must heed the conservation regulations of the
Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary.
Nearby Attractions
The thermal springs at Aguas Calientes, located 800
meters (half a mile) from the town of Machu Picchu. Also
interesting is the climb up to Huayna Picchu, or 'young
mountain' (2,667 masl - 8,748 ft), which is the steep
mountain that stands behind the citadel in the classic
photographs of Machu Picchu. The ascent takes an hour
along a narrow, steep path and at the top stands a set of
terraces apparently built for ceremonial purposes, and
the remains of a partially built temple. Visitors who wish
to climb Huayna Picchu must register at the control post
located in the Sacred Stone section. Visitors are
recommended to use walking shoes and carry water with
them.
Season / Climate
Machu Picchu can be visited all year round, although the
best months are from April to October.
The seasons are clearly defined: summer runs from
November to March, with rains and high humidity; the
winter or dry season runs from April to October.
