Holidays to Cyprus
Small villages, Orthodox Churches, what is there not to love about Cyprus?
Likely government category: Green / Amber
The Greek south of Cyprus has sat uncomfortably alongside Turkish North Cyprus since 1973 when the Mediterranean island was divided. This situation, possibly on the verge of the resolution, makes an intriguing backdrop to any exploration of Cyprus, where modern history merges with some of the oldest relics in the region – just take a look at Kourion, where remains date back to the 13th century BC.
Cyprus can be extremely touristy – coastal hotspots such as Agia Napa, Lemesos and Larnaca are brash and overdeveloped. But move away from these resorts and you’ll find Cyprus has a mountainous interior, great for hiking and cycling, and small villages clustered around Orthodox churches, the perfect place to hole up in a taverna and relax.
