Experience two cultures in divided capital Nicosia

Nicosia is the last divided capital in the world, part of the city belonging to the Turkish side of the island and part of the city belonging to the Greek side. Explore the atmospheric Old City and learn more about Cypriot history in museums such as the Cyprus Museum or the Byzantine Museum, treat yourselves to an unforgettable spa treatment in the Hamam Omerye and shop for souvenirs in Laiki Geitonia. There are many excellent restaurants and cafes to be found in Nicosia and if you want to experience some nightlife during your visit why not head to the highly popular Sfinakia Club on Kyriakou Matsi Avenue.

Explore ancient Pafos

Nea Pafos – which, funnily enough, translates as New Pafos – is a fascinating archaeological site, home to the ruins of ancient Pafos which was founded in the 4th century BC. Marvel at the exquisite mosaics, particularly in what is known as the House of Dionysus; visit the Villa of Theseus, thought to date back to the 2nd century; and explore the Agora and the remains of the Asklipieion, an ancient healing centre and altar dedicated to the deity of medicine.
