Cyprus offers a beautiful setting for archaeological discovery. Amidst the unspoiled natural landscape of this sun-blanched land, we journey through the northern part of the island and discover an array of medieval castles, churches, expansive classical sites, and gentle villages. Meet with a local archaeologist at her dig site and gain a real insight into ongoing excavations uncovering the prehistory on the island.

Salamis is, of course, a real highlight and easily North Cyprus' best archaeological site. Discover the restored Roman theatre, a gymnasium with a monumental bath house attached, cisterns, Byzantine churches and much more.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore a number of impressive archaeological sites, including the Greco-Roman splendors of the 'Homeric' royal tombs of Salamis, the Bronze Age 'copper' city of Enkomi and the atmospheric Medieval churches of Famagusta
  • Enjoy breathtaking views from the Kyrenia Mountains out across the Mediterranean Sea to distant Anatolia
  • Discover domed Byzantine churches, Lusignan-era Gothic cathedrals, Medieval castles, Ottoman-era mosques and caravanserai, along with many other landmarks from Cyprus’ rich history
