Nicosia City Breaks

A historic centre, a modern vibe

Ancient and modern combine in Cyprus’s beautiful capital, an intoxicating city that includes everything from contemporary art galleries and speciality coffee shops to lively bars, theatres and a global dining scene. It also houses a unique collection of art and artefacts that give a fascinating insight into a much older incarnation of Cyprus and city life. Nicosia City holidays centre around the atmospheric Old Town, where much of the action is found around Ledra Street and Onasagorou Street – but it’s an area that rewards aimless wandering, so set aside some time to get lost among its winding alleyways.

Don’t miss the Cyprus Museum, the largest and oldest archaeological museum in Cyprus. For a different perspective altogether, catch a contemporary performance at one of the city’s many excellent theatres. With ancient culture, a contemporary buzz, sunny climate and great connections to the rest of the island, holidays to Nicosia City are a brilliant introduction to Cyprus.
