Visiting: Larnaca, Nicosia, Omodos, Kykkos Monastery, Platres Village, Troodos, Famagusta, My Mall shopping complex and Limassol
We meet the Tour Leader at the airport at 12.45 pm for our 2.55 pm flight to Larnaca with Emirates Airlines. Upon arrival, at around 6.15 pm we shall be transferred to our 3* hotel in Limassol – Harmony Bay Hotel where rooms will be assigned. Dinner at the hotel (extra).
Breakfast will be followed by another full day optional excursion. We will first make a stop in the old city of Famagusta, which is surrounded by one of the best-preserved Venetian fortifications in the Eastern Mediterranean. This city has plenty of medieval and renaissance buildings, unfortunately most of them were severely damaged during the Turkish siege of the city in 1571. Many cannon balls can still be seen in the fortification walls as well as in the walls of these buildings. We will round off the day with a stop at My Mall for some shopping. Dinner at the hotel (extra).
Breakfast will be followed by a full day optional guided excursion. We will visit Larnaca, the oldest city in Cyprus. Modern Larnaca, like other Cypriot coastal towns, is divided into an older city center and a wide sprawl of hotels and restaurants along the beach. From certain facets in the center of the city, one can notice how the east meets the west between minarets and bell towers. We will also visit Nicosia, the world’s last divided capital with the northern side being the capital of the self-proclaimed Northern Cyprus and the southern half being the capital of the Republic of Cyprus. Nicosia has retained more of an authentically Cypriot air than the resorts of the southern coast. Dinner at the hotel (extra).
Today’s optional guided excursion, will take us to the Troodos region. The traditional village of Omodos is built on the side of a mountain amongst a green carpet of vineyards, surrounded by mountains and is one of the most graphical villages in Cyprus. We will make a stop at Kykkos Monastery, located in the Troodos Mountains. It is the wealthiest and most lavish of monasteries and stands on a mountain peak at an altitude of 1,318 metres. Its most notable asset is a silver-gilded icon of the Virgin Mary, one of the three surviving icons painted by the Apostle Luke, enshrined in an ornate tortoiseshell and mother-of-pearl case and never uncovered. Another stop in the Troodos region will be in the picturesque village of Platres. It has one of the highest waterfalls in Cyprus – Caledonia and the village itself is filled with charming old buildings. Dinner at the hotel (extra).
After breakfast our coach will takes us to Larnaca airport. Our Emirates flight to Malta will leave Larnaca at 11.35 am and is expected to land at 1.25 pm.
