Famous for its natural port and Byzantine castle, Kyrenia is not only a lovely old Venetian town, but also the most visited tourist destination in Northern Cyprus.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kyrenia: Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas), Troodos (Monastery of Panayia Trikoukkia, Church Panayya Tu Araka, & more) and Lefke (Palace of Vouni & Soli Ruinen). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Saint Hilarion Castle, explore the historical opulence of Buffavento Castle, explore the activities along Kyrenia Harbour, and contemplate the long history of Mavi Kosk - Blue House.
