Crossroads of Culture
Join art historian Christopher Allen to dig deep into the history of Cyprus, the ‘island of Aphrodite’, through which the wealth of Mediterranean cultures has coursed for more than 8,000 years.
Discover both sides of this fascinating island, with a thorough exploration of southern ‘Greek’ Cyprus and the northern third with its distinctive Turkish influence. See the wondrous church of St Lazarus in Limassol and the diverse range of art and artefacts in the Cyprus Museum and Nicosia Folk Art Museum. Wander through the extraordinary ancient site of Paphos, the capital of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus, and immerse yourself in the underwater archaeology of the Kyrenia Shipwreck Museum.
Cross the Green Line into Northern Cyprus for a walking tour of the Turkish sector of Nicosia, and then travel further north to visit Bellapais Abbey and the Royal Tombs at Salamis.
