As the last divided capital in the world, Nicosia is a fascinating city to explore – offering you a glimpse of two very different worlds. This tour starts in the Cypriot southern sector and crosses the Green Line buffer zone to explore the Turkish-occupied north.
Your first stop is the St John's Cathedral built in the Franco-Byzantine style, unique to Cyprus. Next up is a walking tour through the historic streets of Laiki Geitonia inside the Venetian city walls. It's a maze of winding streets with churches, squares and ornate buildings, and feels more like a village than the heart of a city,
After crossing the Green Line to the north, you'll hear tales of the city's history and culture as you tick off some of the main sites – Ayia Sofia Church and Market Square among them. Then, cross back into the southern sector to Ledra Street and embrace modern city life under your own steam.
