The Phoenicians’ Route – Cyprus

Cyprus has always been considered the island of Aphrodite; no other place in the world, in fact, can boast of having given birth to the Goddess of Love. Real jewel in the Mare Nostrum, the island has been for millennia a crossroads of peoples, religions and cultures.

The traces of its rich history merge today in a structured set of Phoenician, Assyrian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine,  Venetian and Ottoman evidences  kept in magical areas. Often, as a backdrop  to all this, there are endless unspoiled sandy beaches,  hidden coves, fragrant citrus groves, green meadows, a crystal clear blue sea, marinas, villages perched between the mountains and hidden fortresses, as if time had stopped to preserve intact the habits and history.
