Cyprus

Sunshine is the order of nearly every day on the island of Cyprus, which has a typical Mediterranean climate. The weather in Cyprus is characterized by long, hot and dry summers and mild winters, punctuated by brief autumn and spring seasons. The best time to travel to Cyprus is during summer when blue skies are guaranteed, and gentle sea breezes moderate the heat on the coastal resorts. During winter temperatures remain pleasant, but there can be snow and rainfall in the interior Troodos Mountains.

Steeped in hundreds of years' history, it's no wonder Cyprus offers some of the most exciting and fascination sightseeing opportunities in Europe.

Visit the Archaeological Museum in Nicosia to view artifacts dating back to over 8,500 years ago or explore the site of the first discovered Neolithic ruins of Choirokoitia just north of Larnaca. Marvel at the striking mosaic floors in Paphos dating from the third century AD; visit the mystical Catacombs where visitors are greeted by a pistachio tree laden with pieces of cloth, or for a romantic side trip from Paphos, visit the natural grotto on the Akamas Peninsula near Polis (30 miles/48km north of Paphos) where legend has it that the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, used to take her baths.

The public transport system is reliable enough and can get you to most major cities, however, one of the best ways to get a real feel for the country and to explore everything it has to offer is to hire a car for a leisurely tour round Cyprus.
