Cyprus Travel Guide

by our Cyprus expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanDeities like Dionysos, the god of wine, and Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, still draw inquisitive visitors to Cyprus. Steeped in mythology, this Mediterranean jewel brings together stories of the apostles spreading Christianity, ruins of Graeco-Roman temples and Byzantine churches now tagged as Word Heritage Sites. Trekking in the Troodos Mountains, amid the vines that deck the foothills, cycling or riding by the sea, the past makes way for the present day: citrus orchards that blossom under the sun, migrating birds delighting twitchers, and miles of white-sand beaches inviting you to slip into neutral. You’ll love the sunsets as much as the laid back pace, quickened by the rhythm of the occasional sirtaki dance.
