This tour starts in the Cypriot southern sector and crosses the Green Line buffer zone to explore the Turkish-occupied north. Your first stop is the St. John’s Cathedral built in Franco-Byzantine style. Next up is a walking tour through the historic streets of Laiki Geitonia inside the Venetian city walls. It’s a maze of winding streets with churches, squares and ornate buildings. After crossing the Green Line, you’ll hear tales of the city’s history and culture as you tick off some of the main sites – Ayia Sofia Church and Market Square included.

Kyrenia and Famagusta

A trip to the north of the island is a great way to learn about the turbulent history of Cyprus. Time has seemingly stopped still in this Turkish-controlled sector as you’ll discover why when you set foot in Famagusta – a city that has become one of the symbols of the island’s division.

Explore the walled old town of Famagusta and admire one of the most dramatic ensembles of medieval architecture in the eastern Mediterranean. And not far from Famagusta is Salamis, one of the largest and most significant archaeological excavation sites in Cyprus.

The charming harbour town of Kyrenia invites you to linger a little longer. You’ll take a guided tour of the castle and visit the shipwreck museum, before enjoying some free time. Next up is a visit to the ruins of the Gothic Bellapais Abbey. The setting on a mountain slope is as beautiful as the views down Kyrenia and the Mediterranean. It was in the village of Bellapais that writer Lawrence Durrell lived and wrote his novel, Bitter Lemons.

Travelling in an off-road vehicle, our first pit stop is the Famagusta culture centre to understand the history of the island. Then pass through the military checkpoint into northern Cyprus and gaze at the haunting sight of Varosha – once a popular beach resort, it’s lain abandoned since the Turkish invasion more than 40 years ago and is now a no-go zone.

On to Famagusta old town and you can explore the Venetian city walls, its collection of church ruins, or the Gothic cathedral turned mosque. Finally, we switch exploration for relaxation with a boat cruise to the Blue Lagoon where there’s lunch on-board and plenty of time to swim, snorkel or sunbathe.
