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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Larnaca (Finikoudes Beach, Church of Saint Lazarus, &more) and Kyrenia (Bellapais Monastery, Saint Hilarion Castle, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of The Cyprus Museum, indulge in some personalized pampering at Huma Center, don't miss a visit to Selimiye Mosque, and admire the striking features of Buyuk Han.

To see where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Nicosia trip itinerary planner.

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.
