Ayia Napa

— 4 nights
Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Nissi Beach and Konnos Bay. Discover out-of-the-way places like Famagusta City Walls and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Ayia Napa: Famagusta (Salamis Ancient City, Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, &more). There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Greco View Point, explore the world behind art at Traditional house, kick back and relax at Fig Tree Bay, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Landa Beach.

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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Tombs of the Kings and Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The House of Dionysus and Mackenzie Beach. Explore Paphos' surroundings by going to Larnaca (Hala Sultan Tekke & Church of Saint Lazarus), Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery (in Pano Panayia) and Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, step into the grandiose world of Paphos Harbour Castle, delve into the distant past at Panagia of Sintis, and deepen your knowledge of military history at Kolossi Castle.

Beaches · Ruins · Castles
From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
