Summary

This beautiful Mediterranean island has a rich Prehistoric, Classical and Medieval past. The earliest date for the occupation of Cyprus was over 10,000 years ago, and it was these early settlers who developed their own distinctive artefacts, buildings, art and culture we see today.

A very beautiful journey takes us through the land famed as the birthplace of Aphrodite and includes a visit to the Bronze Age olive oil ‘factory’, Roman tombs, and vineyards once tended by crusaders. Each of these remains tell a unique story of ancient Cyprus. Dr. Paul Croft leads us from Prehistoric to Classical sites, overlooking the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Tour highlights:

  • Gain a privileged introduction to Cypriot archaeology by Dr Paul Croft, who has participated in many excavations throughout the island
  • Fantastic, diverse archaeology from Neolithic houses to the fabulous mosaics at Paphos
  • Journey into the unspoilt Troodos Mountains, where traditional villages and spectacular Byzantine churches await discovery
