Cyprus is a small island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea located south of Turkey, west of Syria and Lebanon, north of Egypt and east of Greece. With a handful of Cities sprawled across the Country defined by vastly differing characteristics; Lefkosia (Nicosia), Pafos (Coastal Paphos), Lanark (Larnaca) and Lemesos (Limassol), Cyprus maintains a fascinating perspective on a country so small but so rich in culture and history. Then there is Paphos’ archeological sites that beautifully display Cyprus’ yesteryear with ruins of palaces and mosaic treasures from the mediterranean. Lemesos is famed for its holiday resort area and Wine industry whilst tourists love Lanarka for the its palm-lined promenade. The beauty of Nicosia (the Capital) is the combination of the old and new with surroundings of a venetian sandstone fortress wall, the cosmopolitan city is featured beyond the old quarter. It is thus, very important to understand what you desire from your holiday, be it a relaxing beach holiday or an archeological and cultural experience.
Highlights of Cyprus:
If you are looking for an extremely relaxed holiday without too many options for distracting obscure activities, Cyprus is a wonderful destination.
Apart from the beauty of Cyprus, it is an Island that has a rich turbulent history reaching back to antiquity. The ruins of yesteryear, if you find yourself in Paphos are incredibly beautiful.
Don’t forget to….
Choose an appropriate Hotel Resort. Research where the hotel is in relation to your surroundings as it is beneficial to stay nearby to where you would like to spend your time, rather than having to take taxi’s or other forms of transport around Cyprus. Remember your buckets and spades for the children to enjoy the beaches, as they are a beautiful feature of Cyprus.
