Welcome to the year-round island - the third largest island on the Mediterranean Sea and one of its most popular tourist destinations with an advanced, high-income economy. An island whose rich dramatic history can be traced back over nine thousand years; an island so coveted over the centuries that it has been invaded and claimed by a fascinating mixture of civilizations from near and far all of which have left their culture and shaped its character.
Enjoy a tour around Aphrodite's Cyprus, at the crossroads of three continents where East meets West. An island whose archaeology stems from the Neolithic Age, the Ancient Greeks and the Roman period; where churches and monasteries still stand from Byzantine times; castles and palaces from the days of Crusaders and splendid city walls from Venetian days.
A new experience awaits you every day. Enjoy the Championship Golf courses, inviting beaches and breathtaking mountain trails, explore the quaint villages Once you've been to Cyprus, it's easy to see why you'll come back again.
Best time to visit: Cyprus enjoys an intense Mediterranean climate of hot dry summers starting in mid-May and lasting until mid-September and rainy, quite mild winters from November to mid-March. Spring and autumn are effectively short intervals in between, characterized by smooth weather. With almost year-round clear skies and sunshine, daylight length ranges from 9.8 hours in December to 14.5 hours in June.
Food too reflects the divide: in the North you'll find mostly Turkish cuisine; in the Republic, Greek.
Handicrafts: Ceramics, basketry, weaving, wood carving, silver and copper products.
Local spirits: Zivania (Raki in the North), brandy or Commandaria liqueur wine and other better-quality Cypriot wines are also good purchases.
