Whichever city of Cyprus you want to visit, there will definitely be something interesting to do. Larnaka is the ideal accommodation if you wish to explore the area by car near Ayia Napa, the party area. Also, don’t omit to visit the Stavrovouni Monastery.
If you are in the mood for sightseeing, then Paphos is the ideal place for you. It is full of ancient ruins, dating back more than 2000 years. Paphos is also famous for its wineries, with a variety of Cypriot wines.
It is the third largest Mediterranean island, after Sicily and Sardinia, a popular tourist destination blessed with a rich cultural history, breath-taking nature and sun kissed beaches with crystal clear sapphire waters. Its chief cities are the capital Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol, Famagusta and Paphos, the latter held to be the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite.
Having Larnaca or Nicosia as the home base, visitors can enjoy distinct road trips and renting a car is the ideal solution, as it offers freedom and flexibility to travel, allowing vacationers to visit places that would be difficult to reach by public transport. As the driving system is on the left-hand side of the road like in the UK, choosing a chauffeured transfer or tour can be a truly carefree and safe option.
Lovers of antiquities shouldn’t miss Paphos Archaeological Park and market, the Tombs of the Kings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Kourion (Curium) near Limassol, with its well-preserved Greco-Roman amphitheatre.
Another amazing itinerary includes the old town of Nicosia and the charming, traditional villages Kakopetria, Pedoulas and Omodos on Troodos Mountains, amid pine trees, orchards and extensive vineyards. You will be amazed by the spectacular views from the sea cliffs and the wonderfully clear waters along the coastline from Agia Napa to Cape Greko National Park. Some splendid beaches not to be missed are the small idyllic Konnos Bay, the 300-metre- long beach at Nissi Bay, the natural sandy beach Agia Thekla and Protaras Fig Tree Bay, in this eastern part of the island.
