Full description
Visit Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, and learn about the turbulent history of one of the world’s last divided cities. Begin the 11-hour excursion in the south part of the city and see the Liberty Monument and the Cathedral of St. John. Despite its modest exterior, the interior of the Cathedral of St. John is spectacular. Next, enjoy a walking tour through the Old Town within the Venetian Walls. Cross over the UN buffer zone and enjoy a coffee or lemonade with a delicious cheese pie. Once in the occupied part of Nicosia, visit Buyuk Han and Ayia Sofia Church. From here, spend some free time shopping or grab a bite to eat. If you're interested, the guide can take you on a tour of the nearby Leventis Museum.

Amazing tour! Amazing cultural experience!

What a great tour! The tour guide Alexia did a wonderful job showing all the great sites and giving a wonderful history. She added a personal touch which was very appreciated! Bus was comfortable and driver was also excellent. Great way to see a beautiful island and a very historic city! No complaints what so ever!

The day trip from Paphos to Nicosia was pleasant for us.

.... and informative. Since I and my girlfriend were the only German fellow travelers, we were sometimes overwhelmed with the English text. Possibly there was no German travel companion for this trip or we did not inform ourselves in advance. Nevertheless, we will store the impressions we have gained and keep them in good memory.

The trip met my expectations. The journey from Paphos was long. The border crossing into the Turkish part was special and the visit to St. Sophia Cathedral made us think.
