Kyrenia ©
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.
On the 25th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: delve into the distant past at Bellapais Monastery, step into the grandiose world of Kyrenia Castle, then delve into the distant past at Saint Hilarion Castle, and finally steep yourself in history at Mavi Kosk - Blue House.

To plan Kyrenia vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Brussels, Belgium to Kyrenia is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and car; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Kyrenia. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Brussels in December, with highs in Kyrenia at 19°C and lows at 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Ayia Napa.
