OVERVIEW

Cyprus is a beautiful island in the Eastern Mediterranean, currently divided between two nationalities – Greek and Turkish – meaning that visitors to the island can, depending on their itinerary, experience two different cultures in one holiday. Home to many fascinating historic sites, a host of hotels and luxurious beach resorts, and, of course, breath-taking scenery, Cyprus is a vibrant multi-layered Mediterranean paradise which attracts many tourists each year.

There is so much to see and do on the island, whether you are visiting alone, with family, friends or your significant other. Take a journey into the past by visiting historic attractions such as Salamis, with its restored Roman amphitheatre and scattered Byzantine and Roman ruins, or enjoying a massage or body scrub in the magnificent 16th century Hammam Omerye in Lefkosia (Nicosia). You may also want to pay a visit to St Hilarion Castle, which, on bright sunny days, offers views of the distant Taurus Mountains in Turkey. This ancient castle boasts a fascinating history and also has a romantic local folk legend attached to it, centred around a beautiful fairy enchantress.

During your visit to Cyprus it is also worth spending some time exploring the streets of Nicosia, the world’s only divided capital, part of which belongs to the Greek part of Cyprus; the other, to the Turkish side. Admire the old Venetian walls, enjoy delicious food and beverages in the various wining and dining venues and savour the novelty of being able to hop back and forth between two distinct cultures as the mood takes you.

Alternatively you can spend your Cypriot vacation taking scenic walks through the Tröodos Mountains, with their picturesque trails, quaint villages and interesting historic sites, or you can head to the beach for plenty of swimming and sunbathing in the golden Mediterranean sunshine.
