Kyrenia — 5 nights

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.
Popular historic sites such as Bellapais Monastery and Kyrenia Castle are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St Andrew's Church and Scuba & Snorkeling. Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Saint Hilarion Castle, contemplate the waterfront views at Kyrenia Harbour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chysopolitissa church, and take an in-depth tour of Ancient Shipwreck Museum.

For maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read our Kyrenia trip itinerary builder site.

Brisbane, Australia to Kyrenia is an approximately 31-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 8 hours. Traveling from Brisbane in May, expect nights in Kyrenia to be about the same, around 19°C, while days are somewhat warmer, around 33°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Famagusta.

Famagusta — 3 nights

City of 365 Churches

Just east of the capital sits Famagusta, an ancient port city with archaeological attractions, as well as an abandoned quarter that is popular among tourists as a symbol of the conflict between Turks and Greeks.
Sea Gate and St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Salamis Ancient City and Famagusta City Walls. Next up on the itinerary: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Ghost Town Varosha, get engrossed in the history at NamIk Kemal ZindanI ve Muzesi, steep yourself in history at Ay Trias Bassilica, and kick back and relax at Glapsides Beach.
