An Introduction to Beautiful Cyprus
Welcome to Cyprus, an island of legends that basks year-round in the light of the warm Mediterranean sun. An interesting past 10,000 years long has seen civilisations come and go and the likes of everyone from Alexander the Great to Cleopatra stake their claim here - but then, people do tend to get possessive when faced with such beauty. Aphrodite made her home on Cyprus, and travellers throughout antiquity came here just to pay her tribute.
European Culture and Ancient Enchantment
Today Cyprus is a modern country that effortlessly marries European culture with ancient enchantment. Here you will discover a compact world of alluring beaches and fragrant mountain peaks, vineyards studded with olive trees and ancient ruins that stir the imagination, citrus groves and old stone villages where sweet wine flows as freely as conversations at the local café. A carefree place where a sense of timelessness is magnified by the kindness of the people.
Cyprus: The Year-Round Island
One of the benefits of being a Mediterranean island is plentiful sunshine throughout the year, and Cyprus is no exception. In fact, Cyprus epitomises the ideal weather of the region with sunny days and fine temperatures almost every day.
