This tour is designed for lovers of the Middle Ages. The trip takes us to the northern part of the island. In the capital Nicosia, you will cross the “Green Line” separating the southern part of Cyprus from the occupied northern territory.
The road from Nicosia to Kerynia goes past the mountain Pentadaktylos – which means ”Five fingers” in Greek. Here we will enjoy the legendary St. Hilarion Castle – the main stronghold of the Templars in Cyprus.
Then we arrive at the former summer residence of the French royal Lusignans dynasty – the city of Kyrenia. It is the largest city in Northern Cyprus. Stroll through the narrow streets of the Old town, and go down to the beautiful promenade to spend your free time.
Within the fortification walls of the Venetian Castle explore the Shipwreck Museum housing the remains of the 4th century B.C. cargo ship, from the times of Alexander III of Macedon, and the fragmented goods it carried.
Our journey continues to Bellapais Abbey widely renowned as one of Cyprus’s most fascinating Gothic monuments erected by the Crusaders.
