Explore Paphos - the island's ancient capital - on today's included guided tour. Discover how ancient Cypriot burial practises are refining our understanding of ancient chronology at the Tombs of the Kings, see the famous Paphos Mosaics housed in ancient Roman villas, and visit the Ninth Century church of Ayia Paraskevi.
Spend today relaxing, or perhaps head into Paphos for a little last-minute Christmas shopping. With its decorated trees and festive lights, the town is quite a picture - particularly after dark. Look out for traditional Cypriot festivities, including children singing kalanda (carols) and people preparing vasilopita - a festive pie containing a lucky coin that's traditionally eaten on New Year's Day.
Day Four (Christmas Eve)
Our second included excursion takes us into the centre of Cyprus and up into the Troodos Mountains. Nestled among the peaks lie hidden Byzantine churches, the burial place of Cyprus' first president and even an ancient monastery.
We'll stop in Platres, a popular ski station, to take in the stunning views, perhaps enjoy some refreshments and even perhaps a little Christmas snow, before heading back to the hotel. This evening, the Christmas celebrations get underway with our gala dinner.
Day Five (Christmas Day)
Enjoy the ultimate relaxed Christmas Day. Take a stroll through town or along the seashore, and later enjoy a special festive dinner with music and entertainment.
Day Six (Boxing Day)
Today's optional excursion takes in beautiful Northern Cyprus - a stunning landscape where mountains and ancient villages drift down to a tranquil coastline. Visit Gothic Bellapais Abbey (made famous by author Lawrence Durrell) and the coastal port-town of Kyrenia.
Your final full day in Cyprus is left free so you have time to rest, relax or explore as you see fit.
Bid farewell to your hosts, today, and board our coach for the transfer back to the airport to check in for your flight home.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
