A magnificent island country, Cyprus is the third most populous, in the Mediterranean. Blessed with a rich culture, it makes for one of the oldest civilisations of the Mediterranean. Cyprus is placed south of Turkey.
Limassol Old Town
Waking up to an authentic ‘Cyprus style' brunch is the preferred lifestyle of the neighbourhood of Limassol. The town is structured beautifully, and there are several winding narrow streets. Limassol Old Town is historical at heart. Limassol castle and the ancient city of Kuorion are two important attractions at Limassol.
This place is marked with Turkish style houses. Hence, it also gets the name of ‘Old Turkish Quarter’. Several artisans have their workshops along the streets. This area is like a flashback from the past lifestyle, with traditional and magnificent old Turkish houses. The area of Larnaca is centrally located. Larnaca enjoys a seaside location. The Salt Lake and the Hala Sultan mosque are two beautiful places to visit at Larnaca.
Another stunning area that adorns Cyprus and attracts a large number of tourists is Ayia Napa. High on night-life, Ayia Napa has white sand beaches. This area is full of budget rooms, luxury hotels and even holiday villas.
Famagusta and Varosha
This area is absolutely worth visiting. While Famagusta is an alluring old town, Varosha is said to be a ghost town. The Varosha beach is also prepossessing.
Paphos and Coral Bay
Lying on the south-west coast, Paphos is a hub of elegant resorts and cafes. Coral Bay beach and Paphos beach, are arrestingly divine.
