The sun shines all year round on this diverse, culturally rich island, which was the birthplace of Aphrodite. The country is rich in antiquities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, sandy beaches and medieval castles. With its warm, welcoming people, Cyprus is one of the true gems of the Mediterranean. Renting a car is the perfect way to explore the capital Nicosia, with its 16th Century Venetian ruins. You can then take a short trip to the ancient city of Salamis on the island’s northeast coast and the Kyrenia Mountains with their imposing Bufavento, St Hilarion and Kantara castles. A visit to the fishing village of Ayia Napa is essential to experience a vibrant resort full of cafés, clubs, pristine beaches and exciting nightlife. Cyprus is a beautiful island and you will fall in love with the island’s quaint local restaurants serving distinctively Middle Eastern-style food, including figs, olives, dates and stuffed vine leaves. It is all part of a wonderful holiday experience on Aphrodite’s magical Cyprus.
