Throughout the millennia the island of Cyprus has been of great political importance and was invaded many times. Romans, Persians, Crusaders and Venetians all left their legacy on the island. The sites of ancient Cyprus include the Roman port of Salamis, the Persian palace of Vouni and Greek Soli. Medieval Cyprus is represented by Crusader castles, a Venetian castle picturesquely situated at the end of the harbour and the pretty ruins of the Abbey of Bellapais. An included excursion programme visits many of the main sites and optional excursions include a visit to the stunningly located Crusader castle of Kantara and the ancient sites of Vouni and Soli, visiting Güzelyurt en route.
