Stray from the beaten path and discover the real Cyprus on this 9-hour excursion from Ayia Napa. Ideal for those with limited time on the island, this day-trip covers historic and natural highlights such as the UNESCO-listed Panagia Asinou Church, the Troodos Mountains, and Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. Round-trip hotel transport in an air-conditioned vehicle is included on this small-group tour, limited to 10 people.
Board an air-conditioned coach at your Ayia Napa hotel and relax during the scenic 1-hour drive to Nicosia. On arrival in Cyprus’ capital, you’ll have free time to explore the historic center, contained within ancient Venetian walls, and visit the Green Line, a border that has divided the city in two since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
Then, travel towards the Troodos Mountains and stop at Panagia Asinou Church, a UNESCO-listed landmark famed for its perfectly-preserved frescoes. Spend time at leisure in Troodos Square and capture panoramic vistas of the stunning natural landscapes that surround: Cypriot specialties are available to purchase here.
Next, head to the picturesque Lania Village, renowned for its production of Commandaria wine, and spend free time sampling the local delicacy, mentioned by Homer in his ancient texts.
Return to the vehicle for the journey back to Ayia Napa, where your tour concludes.
