On your first day or two you should take it easy to acclimate to the altitude. This is a good time to take a city tour.
Your tour should include some of the surrounding ruins like Ollantaytambo (check spelling that's from memory), and Parque Arqueologico de Sacsayhuaman. A visit should also be paid to the huge Jesus statue that overlooks the city.
The price will depend on what sites you see and the guide's experience. Make sure you get an English speaking guide, I went on a bilingual tour which slowed things down quite a bit. You don't have to go with the cheapest tour, but it will probably be just as good.
