Choirokoitia – Nicosia- Laiki Yitonia -Pano Lefkara

On the way to Nicosia, we stop for a short in Choirokoitia. Arriving in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, whose historic past combines brilliantly with the bustle of a modern city. We will pass by the Presidential Palace, the House of Representatives, the Venetian Walls, and the ‘Green Line’ before heading to St John’s Cathedral.

After visiting the Cathedral, we will proceed on foot through the narrow streets of the old quarter with its restored buildings to the city, passing from the house of Hadjigeorgaki Kornesiou, Omeriye Mosque, Faneromeni Church, and Ledra Street.

Then you will have plenty of free time for lunch, shopping or any other activity. On the way back to Paphos we will visit the picturesque Pano Lefkara village, famous for its silver craft and home of the traditional Cyprus lace, ‘Lefkaritiko’, which is renowned throughout Europe and beyond.

Explore More About Nicosia:

The island of Cyprus is known for its gorgeous beaches and its good food. Beach towns such as Paphos, Kyrenia, Famagusta, and Larnaca get a lot of attention from tourists and are popular destinations for the winter sun in the cooler months. However, the capital, Nicosia, is much less visited, despite its unique history and culture. Here are a few things you should know about the city before you visit.

There’s more than one currency in Cyprus - If you plan to cross the border, there is another thing you should know. The currency in the south is euros, and in the north, it is the Turkish lira. Many places in the north accept the euro as well but it is best to keep in mind that at some point, you might need to exchange money.

The Walled City is the best part of Nicosia - On both sides of Nicosia, most of the interesting activities and the best places to eat and drink are located in the old city, also known as the Walled City. Ledra Street Crossing Point is conveniently located in the middle of the old city so it is possible to get around on foot and see both north and south Nicosia.

There is no beach in Nicosia - Nicosia is actually the only city in Cyprus that does not have access to the coast or a beach. Don’t worry though, the beach is less than an hour of a drive away! During summer, it gets much hotter than in the other cities.

The best time to visit Cyprus is in April/May or September/October when the weather is cooler, the beaches are warm and there are fewer tourists.
