Prepare to step into a time machine that will transport you straight to the enchanting Middle Ages!
Our adventure begins in the vibrant capital of Nicosia, where you’ll boldly cross the famous “Green Line,” bridging the gap between the southern and occupied northern territories of Cyprus. As we journey towards Kerynia, keep your eyes peeled for the majestic Pentadaktylos mountain, affectionately named “Five Fingers” in Greek.
Here, we’ll uncover the mysteries of the St. Hilarion Castle, once the formidable Templar stronghold in Cyprus.
But that’s just the beginning! Our next stop is the former summer retreat of the French royal Lusignans dynasty, the charming city of Kyrenia.
As we meander through its narrow Old Town streets and bask in the beauty of the promenade, you’ll have some free time to savor the surroundings.
Venturing further, we’ll explore the Venetian Castle, where the Shipwreck Museum proudly displays the remnants of a 4th-century B.C. cargo ship from the era of Alexander the Great. Witness history preserved in its fragmented goods.
Our odyssey continues to the captivating Bellapais Abbey, an awe-inspiring Gothic marvel erected by the Crusaders.
Some of the Highlights of this tour include:
Immerse yourself in history at St. Hilarion Castle (10th century), Bellapais Abbey (13th century), and Kyrenia Castle (Venetian marvel).
Savor strolls, have a delicious lunch and have well-deserved relaxation at Kyrenia Harbor or Old City.
