“A little Continent. The playground of the Gods!”
Cyprus is an island of legends that basks year-round in the light of the warm Mediterranean sun. An interesting past spanning 10,000 years has seen civilizations come and go and the likes of everyone from Alexander the Great to Cleopatra stake their claim here – but then, people do tend to get possessive when faced with such beauty. Aphrodite made her home on Cyprus and travelers throughout antiquity came here just to pay her tribute.
Today Cyprus is a modern country that effortlessly marries European culture with ancient enchantment. Here you will discover a compact world of alluring beaches and fragrant mountain peaks, vineyards studded with olive trees and ancient ruins that stir the imagination, plus citrus groves and old stone-built villages where sweet wine flows as freely as conversations at the local café. One can experience the adventures of a large continent in a small piece of land only within a few hours of driving. Visitors get the chance to travel through beaches, mountains and forests and explore cosmopolitan coastal towns, historic monuments, valleys and gorges.
Cyprus is a carefree place where a sense of timelessness is magnified by the kindness of the people.
