Experience a combination of traditional and modern Cyprus, including archaeological sites encircled by ancient walls, in the country's capital, Nicosia.
Get some historical perspective at Church of Saint Lazarus and Soli Ruinen. Shop till you drop at Ledra Street Crossing Point and Gallery 37. Explore Nicosia's surroundings by going to Chrysospiliotissa Church (in Deftera), Larnaca (Hala Sultan Tekke & Finikoudes Beach) and Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at The Cyprus Museum, step into the grandiose world of Saint Hilarion Castle, and see the sky in a new way at Shacolas Tower Museum & Observatory.

Plan my day in Nicosia using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Nicosia is an approximately 16-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of flight and shuttle; or do a combination of bus, flight, and shuttle. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 6 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Nicosia. In January, Nicosia is cooler than Kuala Lumpur - with highs of 17°C and lows of 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can drive to Limassol.
