Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Cyprus and transfer to your chosen hotel in Kyrenia.

Day 2

This morning's tour will introduce exquisite Kyrenia. Its horseshoe-shaped harbour and imposing medieval castle are a picture-book scene enhanced by the festive decorations of the cafes and shops that fringe the harbour.

This afternoon, return to enjoy the surroundings of your hotel, explore the town under your own steam, perhaps taking in a museum or gallery, or just pass the hours watching the world go by.

Day 3

Today's included excursion takes you to fascinating Famagusta. The city was once one of the world's richest and today is somewhat of a living museum. Explore its ruined churches, former-cathedral-turned- mosque, and Venetian Palace lying amongst modern cafes and shops. You'll also take in the extraordinary Roman ruins of the ancient coastal city of Salamis, with its colonnades, a magnificent theatre and a bathhouse, which was once part of a much larger settlement, a lot of which is now submerged under the sea.

Day 4

Rest and relax at the hotel, or join this morning's optional excursion to historic Nicosia, island capital for more than 12 centuries - a colourful place bursting festive vitality.

This afternoon, return to Kyrenia to bid 2019 goodbye and welcome 2020 with a lively New Year's Eve celebration, including dinner and live entertainment, at the Pia Bella Hotel.

Day 5

Spend a leisurely New Year's morning relaxing, then join us for an afternoon visit to the nearby mountain-top castle of St Hilarion and beautiful village of Bellapais - home to the preserved ruins of a gothic abbey. This idyllic spot was home for three years to celebrated writer Lawrence Durrell, who chronicled his stay here in his novel Bitter Lemons. Wander the ruins of the abbey, stepping back in time, before returning to Kyrenia to relax.

Day 6

Today you are free to enjoy the hotel and its surroundings or to head into Kyrenia once again. Alternatively, you may want to join our optional excursion to the green, citrus-grove surrounded town of Guzelyurt, literally "beautiful place" in Turkish, with its archaeology museum and church of Agios Mamas.

Day 7

Your final optional excursion give you the chance to explore the unspoiled Karpaz peninsula, a rugged spit of land fringed by some of the island's bluest waters, dotted with old villages and home to herds of wild donkeys, and a remote monastery, famous for its holy well.

Day 8

Bid farewell to your Cypriot hosts and transfer back to the airport for your return flight. Back to top
