Aphrodite and Archaeology
Cyprus is all about Aphrodite… the Greek goddess of love, making it perfect for that romantic holiday! Stroll hand in hand along endless beaches, visit the site where Aphrodite emerged from the sea and fall in love with Cyprus.
Cyprus has a fascinating history and is still to this day part Greek and part Turkish… (Turkish in the North & Greek in the South) so depending on what you are after culturally, you can have the best of both worlds!
Choose from its many beaches and vibrant resorts in the east, or secluded rocky inlets and unspoilt harbours to the west. Party your socks off in Ayia Napa or snooze the day away in Limassol. Cyprus is a great choice for a family holiday, romantic break or to let your hair down in the summer!
