Missing the sun? We have just the thing...19th September 2018
Yes, maybe we moaned and groaned a little over the summer at just how hot it managed to get, but now that the season is changing and the skies are getting grey, we can't help but miss the heat.
If, like us, you're wishing you could have just a few more days of gorgeous weather, why not treat yourself to a space on our North Cyprus tour this October?
Departing on Thursday, 25th October, enjoy eight sun-soaked days on this beautiful island, where history, archaeology and vibrant culture await.
October weather in the country's north averages around 20°C, the perfect temperature for wandering impressive ruins, indulging in local cuisine and taking in breathtaking landscapes – all the makings of an idyllic autumn break are within reach!
Cyprus offers a beautiful setting for archaeological discovery. Amidst the unspoiled natural landscape of this sun-blanched land, on our journey through the northern part of the island we find an array of Medieval castles, expansive classical sites, and gentle villages. Meet with a local archaeologist who offers a real insight into the ongoing excavations on the island.
Salamis is, of course, the true highlight of our tour. The ancient city covers a small stretch of land along the Cypriot shore, and is easily the country’s best archaeological site. Discover the fully restored Roman amphitheatre, a gymnasium with marble baths, and a fascinating collection of mosaics.
- Explore vast archaeological sites of once mighty Classical cities – see a mammoth gymnasium complex, Roman baths and a partially restored theatre
- Enjoy stunning views from the Kyrenia Mountains out across the Mediterranean Sea
- Discover atmospheric Byzantine castles, domed Ottoman mosques, arched caravanserai and other landmarks from Cyprus' rich history
