One of the most popular areas is Paphos. Although it has grown from an attractive fishing village and harbour, it still has a friendly atmosphere and welcoming tavernas. Paphos is famous for its historical sites, including the Byzantine Castle, the Tombs of the Kings, St Paul’s Pillar and the Temple of Aphrodite. There are also the mosaic floors of the Roman Villa.
There are quieter resorts north of Paphos, while Limassol is a large resort which stretches 15 miles along the coast, with excellent shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars. Nicosia, with its old walls and churches is also worth a visit as the largest city in Cyprus.
Visitors should make time to go up into the Troodos Mountains. Driving is on the same side as the UK and the roads and signs are excellent. Two-centre holidays are popular, incorporating picturesque mountain or more isolated resorts.
Many clients include a 2 or 3-night cruise to Egypt during their stay. The island is also an ideal venue for weddings, with its pleasant year-round climate and reasonable journey times from most UK airports. All the relevant paper work is easily arranged.
