Cyprus Airport Guide

Nicosia (Lefkosia)

The capital of Cyprus since the 12th century, Nicosia stands at the heart of the Mesaoria Plain. It is currently divided by the 'Green Line', a UN buffer zone that separates the Turkish-occupied north of the island and the Government-controlled south. The Old City, which is being renovated in part, is defined by 16th-century walls built by the Venetians. Among attractions and points of interest are the Cyprus Museum, a storehouse of the island's archaeological treasures, the Folk Art Museum, the new Archbishop's Palace, St John's Cathedral, Byzantine churches, the Byzantine Museum/Makarios Cultural Centre and the ?meriye Mosque. At the end of May, the city hosts the annual International State Fair and at the beginning of June the Nicosia Arts Festival.

Larnaka & the Southeast (Discount Larnaka Airfare)

An industrious resort town, Larnaka has Cyprus' main international airport on its doorstep, a harbour with deep-water berths and a marina. The seafront promenade is fringed with palm trees and caf?s and tavernas. Places of interest include the Agios Lazaros Church and its associated Byzantine Museum, Larnaka Fort, the District Archaeological Museum, the Pierides Museum (a private archaeological museum), the Natural History Museum, the Tornaritis-Pierides Palaeontology Museum and the scant ruins of ancient Kition. During the feast of Kataklysmos (the Greek Orthodox Whitsun), celebrated throughout Cyprus but with especial enthusiasm in Larnaka, crowds throng the shore for watersports, singing, dancing, eating and drinking.

Limassol (Lemesos) & the Southwest

The second-largest city in Cyprus, Limassol is the island's main industrial centre and port. It is also the focus of Cyprus' wine industry. In September, the town holds a wine festival, at which wine and food are served free. During the pre-Lenten Carnival, Limassol bursts into celebration, with bands, gaily decorated floats and dancing. The city is an important tourist destination, and has beaches like Dassoudi Beach and those at nearby Germasogeia, backed by caf?s and tavernas. Limassol Castle stands guard over the old harbour and houses the Cyprus Medieval Museum. There is also a Folk Art Museum, the Limassol District Archaeological Museum and, in the Municipal Gardens, a small zoo.

Pafos & the West

The booming main town and year-round resort in the west consists of Upper Pafos, built on a rocky escarpment that commands a superb view of the coastline, and Lower Pafos, with a taverna-fringed harbour and a long seafront lined with hotels. Pafos is rich in ancient sites, in particular a cluster of excavated Roman villas near the harbour, among them the House of Dionysos and the Villa of Theseus, that contain superb mosaic floors, and the Tombs of the Kings. Other attractions include the Pafos District Museum, the Byzantine Museum, Pafos Fort commanding the harbour, the remains of the Byzantine castle of Saranda Kolones, and Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church, the largest early Christian basilica on the island. Pafos Aquarium is of more recent origin.

Troodos Mountains

The scenery in the forested - or, more accurately, reafforested - mountains is spectacular. Platres, 1128m (3790ft) above sea level on the southern slopes is the ideal base for excursions. It lies on the approaches to Mount Olympus, at 1952m (6404ft) the highest peak in Cyprus, with a summit that is invariably snow-covered in winter and has skiing slopes and facilities.
