What to expect

A trip to the north of the island is a great way to learn about the turbulent history of Cyprus. Time has seemingly stopped still in this Turkish-controlled sector as you'll discover why when you set foot in Famagusta – a city that has become one of the symbols of the island's division.

Explore the walled old town of Famagusta and admire one of the most dramatic ensembles of medieval architecture in the eastern Mediterranean. And not far from Famagusta is Salamis, one of the largest and most significant archaeological excavation sites in Cyprus.

The charming harbour town of Kyrenia invites you to linger a little longer. You'll take a guided tour of the castle and visit the shipwreck museum, before enjoying some free time. Next up is a visit to the ruins of the Gothic Bellapais Abbey. The setting on a mountain slope is as beautiful as the views down to Kyrenia and the Mediterranean. It was in the village of Bellapais that Lawrence Durrell lived and wrote his novel, Bitter Lemons.
