CYPRUS NORTH TO SOUTH

A full itinerary exploring the whole island’s scenic splendour and cultural heritage

Relaxation of the land border in Cyprus allows a tour of the island of Cyprus - guides from North and South present both sides of the history and heritage of this divided island including both parts of Nicosia, Europe's only divided capital. Whilst previous visits involved choosing between the self-declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus, the interested traveller may view both sides of the story and enjoy the best of both. Throughout the millennia the island has been of great political importance. It was invaded many times and the Romans, Persians, Crusaders and Venetians all left their legacy on the island.

The sites of ancient Cyprus include the Roman port of Salamis and Roman Curium. Medieval Cyprus is represented by Crusader castles, Venetian castles and abbeys. Many invaders and perhaps an aspiration to get closer to heaven led Orthodox monks to build small Byzantine churches in the remote Troodos Mountains. In a privileged position in the southern Mediterranean, this isle of Aphrodite has a fine year-round climate and rich, cultural heritage.
