It houses one of the oldest trade ships in the world, which was discovered in the 1960s after laying on the seabed for more than 2,000 years.

This evening, join your fellow travellers for a welcome drink before dinner.

Day 3 Kyrenia – at Leisure

Today, our optional excursion takes us to the ancient city of Salamis, home to a treasure trove of ruins. Highlights of our tour include the Roman bath house, which still displays traces of its original mosaics, a gymnasium boasting an elegant colonnade and impressive statues, and a restored Roman amphitheatre. We’ll continue to the medieval walled town of Famagusta. Stroll around the walls and take in sights including the 14th century St Nicholas Cathedral, the Venetian Palace, St Barnabas Monastery, the abandoned quarter of Varosha and the Royal Tombs, which date back to around the 7th century BC.

Our included excursion today takes us through picturesque countryside to the Kyrenia Mountains, also known as the Five Finger Mountains.

Day 5 Kyrenia – at Leisure

Our optional excursion today takes us on full day exploration to the very east of the island of Cyprus. We will stop in Yeni Erenkoy where you can visit the Ayios Thyrsos Church which has a very scenic location near the sea. After this we will head on to Dipkarpaz which is a small stop for buying water or carrots for the famous donkeys on the Karpaz peninsula. These wild donkeys have been living on the peninsula for years. They are very tame and friendly, and are also a protected species by law. We will then drive all the way to the end of the peninsula to see the St Apostolos Andres Monastery. There are plenty of wild donkeys here too. We will then start the drive back to the hotel, but will stop at Golden beach which is one of the best in the whole of Cyprus where you can swim. Lunch is included on this excursion.
