Discover an island full of intriguing culture and stunning coastal views on our guided holiday to Cyprus. Over the course of our holiday, we’ll uncover the remnants of once-mighty kingdoms scattered across the countryside, from the architectural legacy of the Venetian and Ottoman periods to Bronze Age tombs and Neolithic dwellings. We’ll start with a tour of Limassol, taking in historic sites like the archaeological park of Curium and venture into its surrounding vineyards for a wine tasting in a local cellar. We’ll take an excursion to Paphos, one of the most important archaeological regions on the island and visit the country’s capital, Nicosia, the only world capital spanning two countries. We’ll also have plenty of time at leisure to discover Limassol on our own or relax on the island’s beautiful beaches.
