Nicosia

the last divided capital

Experience a combination of traditional and modern Cyprus, including archaeological sites encircled by ancient walls, in the country's capital, Nicosia.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque and Church of Saint Lazarus. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mackenzie Beach and Ancient Shipwreck Museum. Explore Nicosia's surroundings by going to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Larnaca) and Kyrenia (Bellapais Monastery, Kyrenia Castle, &more). There's more to do: get engrossed in the history at The Cyprus Museum and admire the striking features of Buyuk Han.

The legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the capital of western Cyprus, the city of Paphos showcases an abundance of archaeological, architectural, and historical sites.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul. Visit Tombs of the Kings and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery for their historical value. Step out of Paphos to go to Pano Panayia and see Vouni Panayia Winery, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to The House of Dionysus, take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church, explore the ancient world of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, and stroll through Coral Bay.

Located along Cyprus's lovely Fig Tree Bay, Protaras is a family-friendly resort town with beautiful beaches and plenty of recreational activities.
