a 16 day tour of Cyprus with Helen Nicholson
24 September - 9 October 2017
This sixteen day tour explores the rich cultural heritage of Cyprus that spans from Neolithic settlements to UNESCO World Heritage listed churches in the Troodos Mountains, and from ancient Phoenician, Greek and Roman sites to more recent medieval and Ottoman monuments and museums.
After two days exploring Larnaca and its environs we travel west to Limassol and Paphos both home to spectacular Greek, Roman, medieval and Ottoman sites, museums and monuments. The tour then leaves the coast and heads inland to the forested Troodos Mountains where picturesque villages and architecture awaits. We then travel to the capital Nicosia and spend six nights. While here there are day trips to Northern Cyprus visiting Salamis, Famagusta and Kyrenia and three days exploring sites, monuments and museums within the Venetian walls of Nicosia itself.
Late summer is a good time to visit Cyprus and the tour has been designed to introduce and explore this fascinating past as well as providing opportunities to discover the vibrant contemporary society that awaits travellers to the island today.
