Travel to Cyprus
Cyprus, an island known as the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, is truly magical. Already mentioned by Shakespeare and Homer, and a fascinating mix of just to name a few, Greeks, Egyptians, Persians, Arabs, Ottomans and British cultures – our island has a lot to offer. Perpetual sunshine, white sandy beaches, and the blue Mediterranean sea form the perfect backdrop for any travel. Greek temples, Roman amphi theatres, off-the-beaten track mountain trails with small villages where you enter oldy worldly taverns to have a drink with the locals, it is what makes Cyprus so charming. Activities galore, what to choose will be the hardest part, but we can help with this! Ranging from mountain cycling, jet skiing, diving, clubbing, teambuilding on the beach and rustic dining, we put together the most perfect program for you and your clients.

Travel Highlights Cyprus
Tombs of the Kings
Dating back to the 3rd century bc, all you hear is the sound of waves when you visit this stunning site. You can well imagine what a vision it must have been then. These underground tombs and chambers are now a Unesco World Heritage Site.
On the southern coast of Cyprus, this old port town has an elegant old quarter, olde worlde tavernas and bars, and beautiful medieval castle
This stunning national park is located right next to the cliffs rising from the sea. There are beautiful nature trails, one of them, the famous Aphrodite trail. You can visit a small chapel dedicated to Agioi Anargyroi and when you clamber the rocks down below, you’ll find a hermit’s sea cave. Another spectacular sight is Cyclops cave. The park has a lighthouse and protected wildlife.
On the south coast of Cyprus, close to the salt lake, lies Larnarca. It is know for its Finikoudes Beach, a lovely sandy beach. Larnaca now has a pedestrian and cycle way along its seafronts. You will find many little bars and restaurants lining the seafront. It’s popular too for shipwreck diving
A romantic harbor town, full of rustic charm, is located in the south east of the island. It has several sites relating to the cult of goddess Aphrodite, whose mythical birthplace was at Old Paphos
Wraped around the Old Harbour, Kyrenia is a small, but beautiful Old Town and absolutely worth a visit. You can stroll along town, viewing the ruins of the Lusignan walls and towers which originally surrounded it. It is a tranquil town with gorgeous views.
This beautiful rock is covered by forest. Declared a national park in 1992 and roughly divided into 5 areas, you will find, besides beautiful forests teemed with wildlife, also vineyards and authentic mountain villages, where time has stood still. It has still many monasteries and painted medieval churches

Castle of Limmasol
Our tour takes us to Limassol, which traces its history to the Middle Ages, and is named so being situated between (anamesa) the ancient Kingdom of Kourion and Amathus.
The medieval Castle of Limassol is where, according to tradition, after conquering the island in 1192, King Richard the Lionheart of England married Princess Berengaria of Navarre in the castle’s small chapel. The castle itself is surrounded by the old town’s winding shopping streets where visitors can bargain with the local shopkeepers for handicrafts and visit one of the town’s many coffee shops. The Limassol harbour and Marina, with its range of upscale shops and restaurants, is only a short walk away; where guests can be spoiled at a local restaurant.
Passing though the Fassouri citrus plantations; we come across the medieval Castle of Kolossi. It is a fine example of military architecture originally constructed in the 13th century during the crusades. After the Siege of Acre in 1291, it served as the Grand Commanderie of the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem; and thus gave its name to the world famous Commandaria wine, which is still produced in the area.
Our next visit is the ancient Kingdom of Kourion, which is placed on one of the most spectacular sites in the island, with extensive archaeological ruins including well-preserved mosaics. Its Greco-Roman amphitheatre, built in the second century BC, is famous for its vistas of the Mediterranean Sea. The kingdom is also renowned for its preserved mosaic floors in the House of Eustolios, the House of Achilles and the House of the Gladiators.
Lunch at a local tavern.
