Cyprus


The little island of Cyprus boasts a surprisingly diverse geography bursting with UNESCO sites, archaeological parks, mythology, mountain villages, and long white sand beaches with warm turquoise waters.

The far southeastern part of Europe and just off the coast of Syria, Israel, and Turkey, this fascinating island is a powerhouse of rich ancient sites and a hot global beach destination. The only European capital with a divided capital, Nicosia’s green line marks the division between Greek Cyprus and Turkish-claimed North Cyprus. The Cypriot personality is unique, as are its wines, cheeses, and Mediterranean cuisine with influences of the Levant.
