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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Nicosia: Limassol City (Limassol Marina & Scuba & Snorkeling). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Ledra Street Crossing Point, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, look and learn at Shacolas Tower Museum & Observatory, and admire the landmark architecture of Buyuk Han.

On the 7th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the activities along Kyrenia Harbour, and then make a trip to Agha Cafar Pasha Mosque.

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Step out of the city life by going to Nissi Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Step out of Ayia Napa with an excursion to Salamis Ancient City in Famagusta--about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Konnos Bay, stroll through Fig Tree Bay, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Profitis Elias, and go for a walk through Cape Greco National Forest Park.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Ayia Napa trip maker.

Getting from Kyrenia to Ayia Napa by car takes about 2 hours. Other options: take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 31°C in May, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
