CYPRUS HIGHLIGHTS

Modern Cyprus is a crossroads where the ancient world, with its colour and light, its myths and its legends, meets contemporary Western culture, sophisticated and unique in its own way. It is also a crossroads for three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa – with the consequence that, over the centuries, it has absorbed every kind of cultural influence, with contributions from Phoenicia, Assyria, Egypt, Persia, Rome, France, Venice, Turkey and Britain, which have all had a hand in shaping its history.

Venerated by the ancient Greeks as the birthplace of the goddess of love, Cyprus has retained the mystery and the magic that seem to spring from its natural beauty. From the breathtaking beaches caressed by the sea to the proud splendour of the Troodos mountain range, this, the third largest island in the Mediterranean, is more than a holiday destination – it is a place where the visitor’s mind and body attain the harmony that modern life increasingly disrupts. An island of myriad pleasant surprises, with an unequalled tradition of local hospitality, Cyprus offers its visitors a joyful and healing experience. While it is never the same at different times of year, every season here has a fascination, a beauty and a peace all of their own.

Here in Cyprus there is something for everyone. Mediterranean cuisine, sun-drenched beaches, peaceful and fragrant mountains with old charming villages, vineyards, olive trees, citrus groves and friendly locals, all make Cyprus an ideal holiday destination – relaxing or romantic, depending on the visitor’s mood. For those contemplating more fast-paced and active experiences, there are all types of sports available – water sports, snorkelling, hiking and even skiing in the winter – while the nights may be spent enjoying the cosmopolitan cafes, bars and clubs found in all the larger cities on the island.

An ancient myth evolved into a modern paradise, Cyprus is waiting to welcome you to its shores.
