Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Cyprus, meet your Tour Manager at the airport, and board the coach for the transfer to your chosen hotel.

Day Two

Explore Paphos - the island"'s ancient capital - on today"'s included guided tour. Discover how ancient Cypriot burial practices 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 Agia Paraskevi.

Day Three

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 a relaxed Christmas Day. Take a stroll through the town or along the seashore, and later enjoy a special festive dinner with music and entertainment.

Day Six (Boxing Day)

Today is left free so you have time to rest, relax or explore as you see fit.

Day Seven

Your final full day in Cyprus brings the opportunity to visit beautiful Northern Cyprus on an optional excursion. Discover a stunning landscape where mountains and ancient villages drift down to a tranquil coastline, and visit Gothic Bellapais Abbey (made famous by author Lawrence Durrell) and the coastal port-town of Kyrenia.

Day Eight

Bid farewell to your hosts, today, and board our coach for the transfer back to the airport to check in for your flight home.
