What to do and see in Cyprus

Wander picturesque streets in the Old Town of Nicosia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site crammed with 16th century architecture and the only divided capital in the world, with it’s UN-enforced Green Line separating the Greek and Turkish sections of the city.

Discover Cyprus' ancient sites by hire car. Glimpse the island’s history at the archaeological site of Kourin, peer into the Baths of Aphrodite – a natural grotto fringed with gorgeous maidenhair ferns where (supposedly) the Greek goddess of love used to bathe – admire exquisite mosaics in Paphos, then visit the Tombs of the Kings, a massive underground catacomb complex dating back over 2,000 years.

Explore one of Cyprus' ancient castles: Saint Hilarion Castle (photo) towers out of the limestone rocks of the Kyrenia mountain range offering majestic vistas.

Don't miss the colourful Limassol Carnival and Paphos’ Anthesteria Flower Festival, both held in February. Sample local wine at the Limassol Wine Festival in September and watch the Cyprus Rally in November.
