Travel Highlights Cyprus
Located on the southern coast of Cyprus, Limassol is the island’s second largest city, a cosmopolitan destination with a large selection of five star resorts and restaurants for any taste. Due to its location, Limassol is a great starting point to explore - with most attractions throughout the island within a one-hour radius. Within the city, visitors can discover the old town, the marina and the town’s beautiful coastline.
The island’s capital and administrative centre, Nicosia boasts its medieval fortifications to this day. Stroll down Laiki Geitonia and Ledras street to explore its picturesque old town, the Byzantine and Archaeological museums as well as many of the capital’s great dining options.
Birthplace of Aphrodite, Paphos is strewn in myth and legend. Located on the south west coast of the island guests can visit the Akamas peninsula, a natural reserve area, the UNESCO protected Mosaics, the Tombs of the Kings and enjoy their lunch at its quaint harbour.
The Troodos mountain range reaches a peak of 1,952 meters above sea level. Ascending from the coast, it offers a dramatic change of scenery. From the vineyards and villages that dot its foothills, to its dense pine and cedar forest, home to unique flora and fauna, and finally its snowy peaks. It is said that in March, one can easily ski in Troodos and within an hour water-ski in Limassol.
World famous for its crystal clear waters and golden beaches, Ayia Napa is located on the east of the island. With its large selection of resort and restaurants, combined with Cyprus’ sunny weather, it has evolved into a year round destination.

Cyprus Through the Ages
From Limassol, we board 4x4 Land Rover Defenders and head out to explore the island’s rich history with a few scenic stops along the way.
Our first stop is the Castle of Kolossi, a fortification in the outskirts of Limassol where the Grand Commanderie of Medieval Knights was based during the middle-ages. Commandaria, one of the worlds oldest wines gets its name from it.
We move on to Kourion, one of Cyprus’ ancient city kingdoms. Its roman mosaics are well preserved and its beautiful amphitheatre overlooking the Mediterranean is a great photo stop for our guests.
Heading northwards towards the Troodos mountain range, we take a detour off-road to enjoy the scenery and have a quick stop at Tzelefos bridge before our visit to one of the area’s best wineries. There, we have a chance to enjoy the local wines and learn about Cyprus’ long history in winemaking.
Before lunch at a local tavern, we explore the picturesque village of Omodos with its buzzling village square, the Monastery of the Holly Cross and its narrow streets lined with local shops.
