Detailed itinerary:

Nicosia, lies roughly at the center of the island, with a rich history that can be traced back to the Bronze Age. Today, it blends its historic past brilliantly with the bustle of a modern city. 

The heart of the city, enclosed by the 16th century Venetian walls, is dotted with museums, ancient churches and medieval buildings preserving the nostalgic atmosphere of years past.

The famous Famagusta Gate still stands today, proudly protecting the still-ancient town within from the modern city around the walls. From there, we will drive to the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and its 13th and 18th century wall paintings; depicting scenes from the Bible and the discovery of the tomb of St. Barnabas in Salamis.

Enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the capital of Cyprus with a visit to the prominent

Archaeological Museum with its fascinating collection of Cypriot antiquities and treasures from the Neolithic age to the Early Byzantine period. 

After a passing the Venetian walls of the old city and Famagusta Gate, we arrive at Laiki Geitonia and stroll at leisure down its stone paved streets towards Ledras, where many taverns and restaurants serve local dishes.
