Cyprus, North to South
A full itinerary exploring the ancient island of Aphrodite’s scenic splendour and cultural heritage
The Republic of Cyprus boasts picturesque villages, the stunning Troödos Mountains with UNESCO heritage Byzantine churches, ancient Curium with its Greek theatre and the museums and palace of the capital, Nicosia, as well as its well-known resorts and beautiful coastline.
This isle of Aphrodite has a fine year-round climate and rich, cultural heritage for curious visitors to unveil. Many civilisations have occupied the island and points of interest mark their presence and include Crusader castles, Venetian castles and abbeys, and Byzantine churches.
As the island is still divided in two (right through the capital), you can gain two different perspectives on this history from guides on both sides of the island on one of our Cyprus tours.
The self-declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is one of the Mediterranean’s forgotten corners and is still largely untouched, making it the ideal destination for the discerning traveller looking for something off-the-beaten-track.
As soon as you enter these undeveloped areas you gain an immediate appreciation for the raw beauty of the landscape. The rugged Karpas Peninsula is home to remote sandy beaches, wild donkeys wandering the pine-covered hills and a sprawl of historic churches. Other hidden gems include Byzantine-built Buffavento Castle, the disused Antiphonitis monastery, the ancient city of Lambousa and the pretty Bellapais Abbey.
This beautiful country has a sub-tropical climate, offering travellers sunshine most days of the year. Spring and Autumn are still pleasantly warm, with the peak summer months being dry and hot.
Our Cyprus tours depart every month of the year apart from January; for sun seekers and those who don’t mind the heat, June, July and August are the best times of the year. Those who prefer a much cooler holiday, September to December and April to May tend to be not only quieter, but milder too.
Experience all the wonders this beautiful country has to offer. From its awe-inspiring views and beaches to its tasty cuisine and friendly locals, Cyprus is a place worth adding to your list.
