“Tied” to the myths of antiquity, “sculpted” by the cultures of the West and the East that left their mark indelibly and carrying the history of eleven thousand years, Cyprus remains the island of beauty, taste, frantic entertainment and countless moments of relaxation on its famous beaches.
Starting from Larnaca, the gateway to Cyprus, since the island’s International Airport is located there, wonder around the places that Aphrodite “walked” and was worshiped, like no other ancient goddess. From the rocky shores, near Paphos, to Petra tou Romiou, where the goddess of love emerged from the foamy waters, to the Holy Palaeopafos, a place of world cultural heritage and to Amathus, you will find unique breathtaking landscapes, ruins of ancient temples and cities. In the Akamas Peninsula, visit the idyllic cave of the Baths of Aphrodite, where the goddess used to bathe and met for the first time her lover, Adonis. Going up Mount Troodos, you will find a multitude of Byzantine churches and monasteries with admirable frescoes and a long tradition, such as the Monastery of Kykkou dedicated to the Virgin Mary. In the most organized tourist centers of Paphos, Larnaca and Limassol, where the fun never stops, with luxury hotels and accommodation for every taste, you will be impressed by the medieval castles by the sea that will take you back to the time of the knights and Richard of Leontokardos.
Walk in the neighborhoods of “memory”, in the picturesque alleys of Nicosia, the capital of the island, which remains half free and half under occupation. Visit the gate of Famagusta, tour the main pedestrian streets of Nicosia and go up to the 11th floor of the Ledra Museum where the Observatory of the city is located and one can see beyond the liberated city. Dive into the crystal clear blue waters of Ayia Napa, Paphos, Protaras, Larnaca and Limassol.
Taste the famous halloumi, seftalies and koupepi, the dolmades as they call them in Cyprus. Accompany the delicious appetizers with zivania and the traditional sweets with koumandaria.
Visit the island of Aphrodite and live an unforgettable experience!
