Duration: 9 hours
Schedule: Friday, 08:30
Travel to Nicosia and see the major landmarks of the divided capital. Start with a complimentary coffee and local snack at the old Skarinou station between Limassol and Nicosia. There you can find traditional production machines such as an olive press, wine press, distillation apparatus and more.
Drive through the modern city passing by the Liberty Monument, Famagusta Gate and the Archbishop's Palace, all within the Venetian walls where the old city is situated. Visit St. John's Cathedral, with its well-preserved wall paintings created by the Cretan Master Ioannis Kornaros in the 18th century. Proceed to the old quarter of Nicosia, Laiki Geitonia, popular for its narrow cobbled streets, colorful cafes and shopping areas.
At the end of Ledra Street is the Green Line, which divides the city in two. Cross the check-point into the occupied side of Nicosia, where the Buyuk Han, the Cathedral of St. Sophia converted into Selimiye Mosque and a small bazaar can be seen, before returning to the government controlled area and heading back to Paphos, stopping on the way for another cup of coffee.
Duration: 5 hours
Schedule: Wednesday and Sunday, 09:30 - Starting June 1, 2016
Go up north of Paphos and arrive at the Latchi harbor to board an unforgettable cruise of the Akamas region with its crystal clear waters and beautiful bays. From the boat, see the famous Baths of Aphrodite, St George Church, St George Island, the sea caves of Manolis Bay, Blaji Bay and the famous Blue Lagoon at Chamili Bay. The cruise will anchor at either at the Blue Lagoon or the Fontana Amorosa (depending on the weather) for swimming and snorkeling.
The Blue Lagoon is a sheltered bay where the water tends to be warmer than the rest of the area. Alternatively, the deeper water of the rocky edged Fontana Amorosa makes it ideal for diving. Fins and snorkels will be provided free of charge. During the cruise, guests will be offered a welcome drink, wine and seasonal fresh fruit. Upon return to Latchi harbor, time will be given for those wishing to enjoy lunch or take a stroll along the lovely fishing harbor.
