  • Limassol, Cyprus

    Limassol, Cyprus

    Still known to many as Limassol, Lemesos is one of Cyprus’ most underrated cities. Although fringed on its eastern edge by a glut of bland-looking developments with its eye firmly on the tourism industry, the core of this city is full of character. Wrapped around the dinky castle, the central old town radiates out in a squiggle of lanes where old shuttered houses and modern boutiques both squeeze themselves into the fray. It’s an area buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants that are as popular with locals as they are with visitors.
  • Ayia Napa, Cyprus

    Ayia Napa, Cyprus

    Ayia Napa is perfect for those wanting an exciting nightlife or some relaxation in this tranquail old fishing village.

The beaches are one of the focal points of this town as they can only be described as stunning. The rugged coastline has a number of bays and coves which are worth exploring, as is the harbour situated by Nissi Beach. There are plenty of attractions to keep everyone entertained on holidays to Ayia Napa, but if that is not enough you can also head to nearby resorts to check out what they have to offer. With great weather all year round, whether you are sunbathing on the beach or taking part in some watersports, holidays to Ayia Napa are perfect for you!
  • Paphos, Cyprus

    Paphos, Cyprus

    The 'Tombs of the Kings' is the impressive necropolis that is located just outside the walls, to the north and east of Pafos town. It was built during the Hellenistic period (3rd century B.C.) to satisfy the needs of the newly founded Nea Paphos. Its name is not connected with the burial of kings, as the royal institution was abolished in 312 B.C., but rather with the impressive character of its burial monuments. The 'Tombs of the Kings' was the place where the higher administrative officers and distinguished Ptolemaic personalities as well as the members of their families were buried. The necropolis was continuously used as a burial area during the Hellenistic and Roman periods (3rd century B.C.-beginning of 4th century A.D.). There is sufficient evidence to support the fact that the first Christians also used the site for their burials, while at the same time the site constituted an endless quarry. Squatters established themselves in some of the tombs during the Medieval period and made alterations to the original architecture.
