Tourism in Cyprus

Cyprus is a deeply enjoyable holiday island that boasts countless charms year round. Within this one compact and sweepingly attractive island are a diversity of rich landscapes and assorted travel experiences.

Cyprus as a destination is not just about its beaches, as it also offers skiing and hiking in its voluminous mountains, charming hilltop villages and vine-blessed slopes with nearby towns where you can sample the seriously underrated Cypriot wine.

.Then there is the sweep of Roman and Greek remnants that scatter the island and sit dramatically amongst its coast and mountains. Moving into the towns and cities, there is a dash of Mediterranean strut to go with the bright lights and energetic nightlife.
 
Cyprus is a modern country that effortlessly marries European culture with indelible links to the past. Here, visitors can discover a compact world of clean beaches and rugged mountain peaks, vineyards studded with olive trees and ancient ruins that stir the imagination, citrus groves and old stone villages where 21st-century Europe seems a very long way away indeed.

 

Cyprus Food - Restaurant and tavern food tends to be very simple, rarely involving sauces but with full use of local olive oil and charcoal grills.

All restaurants have a standard menu, which includes the availability and price of each dish. A good proportion of the restaurants will serve international dishes.

The nightlife is centred in main towns and resorts with late-night bars, dance clubs and live concerts. Athens' nightlife is among the best in Europe, with many local taverns, particularly in the Plaka area, and typical Greek bars plus a glut of bars and small clubs in the night time districts of Psirri and Gazi.

In summer many of the big clubs move out of the centre to the beaches at Voula, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza. Regular concerts and evening shows are held at the second-century Odeion of Herodes in Athens, below the Acropolis, during the June and September. Nightclubs featuring live Greek music are extremely popular.

Through summer, the islands of Mykonos and Santorini are also noted for their exceptionally vibrant nightlife. There are also some casinos in Greece.

If you are a shopper then you can pick up relatively cheap special purchases such as lace, jewellery, metalwork, pottery, garments and knitwear, rugs, leather goods, local wines and spirits. Athens is the best place for luxury goods and local handicrafts.
