Island life at a relaxed pace
Great Crusader castles stand sentinel over golden beaches as wildflowers dot the scrub and ancient cities flaunt proud Roman legacies in Northern Cyprus. Fresh citrus fruits and wild donkeys scatter the landscape, monasteries stand silent in the midday sun, and the Kyrenia Mountians tower over the coastline. Explore the Greek and Turkish sides of Nicosia, this last divided capital of Europe, its old quarters and covered market, and discover the grand castle fortresses of Kyrenia. Overflowing with historical and cultural treasures from the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras, Northern Cyprus is a Mediterranean island gem.
