The entire City of Paphos reveals the remains of ancient palaces, tombs, villas, fortresses and theatres.  The site of Byzantine Painted Churches in the Troodos Mountains, all richly decorated with murals, and the Neolithic settlement of Choirokoitia - that's three UNESCO World Heritage Sites on one small island!

Nicosia is the inland capital city with a history dating back to the 7th Century.  Here you will find the Cyprus Museum (lying just outside the city walls) which has a fascinating collection of Cypriot antiquities and treasures from the Neolithic Age to the Early Byzantine Period.  Limassol is still the major tourist centre on the island and throughout its history has been recognised as the city of fun and entertainment.  One of the brightest annual events is definitely the Carnival, although many cities and villages organise carnival events, Limassol hosts the largest and most colourful one in Cyprus.  In early spring before Lent, the 10 day festival reaches its climax on the weekend when there are singing competitions, called Cantades, in which rival groups of singers compete with each other.  Limassol is also the wine capital of Cyprus and holds the wine festival for 12 days in early September, at the Municipal Gardens.  Ayia Napa is a lively seaside resort and the party capital, Larnaca has some admirable architecture; both have fine restaurants and beautiful beaches on which to bask. 

Cyprus packs a mighty punch and as a significant tourist hot spot in the Med, will surely satisfy any discerning traveller's taste.
