Lefkara

 
Lefkara Half way on the road from Nicosia or Larnaca to Limassol the white Lefkara hills catch the attention. The name Lefkara is attributed to the light color, almost white, limestone (Lefka ori white mountains). The picturesque villages of Pano Lefkara, Kato Lefkara and Kato Drys are perched in these southern foothills of the Troodos mountains, 10Km from the Nicosia-Limassol highway and a short distance from the beach and the cities of Nicosia , Limassol and Larnaca. Once an administrative center with a population of more than 5000 at the beginning of the 20th century, Pano Lefkara today has a population of about 1000 and boasts a unique architecture that remains to this day. The stone-built houses are separated by nar...
 

Nicosia

 
Nicosia Nicosia lies roughly at the center of the island, with a rich history that can be traced back to the Bronze Age. It only became Capital of the island in the 11th century AD. The Lousignians turned it into a magnificent city with a Royal Palace and over fifty churches. Today it blends its historic past brilliantly with the bustle of a modern city. The heart of the city, enclosed by 16th century Venetian walls, is dotted with museums, ancient churches and medieval buildings preserving the nostalgic atmosphere of years past. Yet this old heart is split in two, leaving Nicosia the only capital city in the world to remain divided by force. The new Nicosia developed outside the walls became a contemporary, business ...
 

Paphos

 
Paphos With its population of only 27,000 inhabitants Paphos is the capital of Cyprus' western region. Most of the inhabitants work as employees in various branches of tourism, because there is not much industry. Paphos consists of two areas: the coastal resort area (Kato Paphos) and the town itself (Pano Paphos) which is slightly inland. Paphos is very popular with tourists, and especially with English, German and Scandinavian tourists. Among its attractions are its ancient mosaic floors, its beautiful old harbour, its modern hotels and restaurants, situated along the seaside promenade.Other sights include an archaeological museum, the Byzantine castle of Paphos, the Tombs of the Kings, St. Pauls Pillar and the Temp...
 

Ayia Napa

 
Ayia Napa Ayia Napa, located southeast of the islands coast, is reputable for its tourist resort all over Europe. It is one of Cyprus's most popular beach resorts. Normally the little village has less than 1000 inhabitants, but during summer season it hosts more than 10.000 tourists per day. The beaches are awesome with thin and fine sand, hidden among a chain of rocky boulders that form many small and cosy bays. The main centre of the district is Paralimni, 3 miles north of Ayia Napa itself. East of the village is Protaras, known for its lively nightlife and partying people. Just in the center of Ayia Napa you 'll find a spectacular monastery at the entrance of an old fig tree. In the court an octagonal fountain which has ...
 

Kourion

 
Kourion Kourion has the most interesting excavations of Cyprus. You find the place on the road from Pafos to Limassol. Best take the road along the sea. You'll pass first the birthplace of Afrodite and then not far from Limassol you first see the temple of Apollo and the holy street and then the huge archeological park of Kourion. It is open every day from 8.00 hour. The scenery is fantastic above the sea. There is a restaurated theatre and next to it the house of Eustolos with wonderful mosaics. Thats what most tourists see, but there is much more e.g. the basilca, the thermes, the forum and the house of the gladiator. And everywhere there are hidingplaces against the sun with seaviews....
 

Kyrenia

 
Kyrenia Kyrenia is situated in Northern Cyprus. Whilst a lot of money has been invested in the area, there are still peasant markets etc. and while parts of the town are modernising, it is also one of the most beautiful on the island.There is a beautifull view of the sea as well as being able to see the mountains in their full glory. For accomodation Sammy's hotel is highly recommended. This is a small family run hotel, that not only is spotlessly clean, but has a personal touch and a warm atmosphere. The staff will go out of their way to provide you with services such as a drive to the nearest beach etc. The Ship Inn has a really good service as well, while for eating out the Kyrenia Tavern is a secret waiting to be discov...
