Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • Fly to Cyprus and transfer to the Salamis Bay Conti Resort.

  • Today's included excursion introduces you to nearby fascinating Famagusta. The city was once one of the world's richest and today is somewhat of a living museum. Explore its ruined churches, former-cathedral-turned-mosque, and Venetian Palace lying amid modern cafés and shops. You'll also take in the extraordinary Roman ruins of the ancient coastal city of Salamis, with its colonnades, a magnificent theatre and a bathhouse, which was once part of a much larger settlement, a lot of which is now submerged under the sea.

     

  • This morning you’ll have the chance to stretch your legs and get some fresh air by visiting historic Kantara Castle on an optional half-day excursion. Located around 1800ft above sea level in the Kyrenia Mountains, Kantara Castle is one of several castles in the area that formed a defensive perimeter, protecting Cyprus’ northern shores from invaders. Thanks to its unique vantage point, Kantara was used to pass messages to the other castles. The castle’s date of construction is unknown, but there are clear Byzantine and Frankish architectural elements. Your knowledgeable local guide will bring the castle’s fascinating history to life, including the story of when it was taken by Richard the Lionheart in 1191.

    This afternoon, return to your hotel to begin your celebrations with a Christmas Eve dinner.

  • A day at leisure to relax and enjoy Christmas Day at your hotel, making the most of the facilities on offer before Christmas Dinner is served this evening.

  • Rest and relax at the hotel or join today’s optional excursion to historic Nicosia, island capital for more than 12 centuries and separated into a Turkish north and Greek south since the Green Line was first drawn, in 1963.

    Enjoy a guided tour of the northern territory, where highlights include the ancient Büyük Han, once the largest caravanserai (roadside inn) on Cyprus, the colourful covered bazaar and the Selimiye Mosque (historically known as the Cathedral of St Sophia). After crossing into the southern territory, you'll have free time to explore the narrow streets that shelter within the Venetian walls of Nicosia's old town. Why not visit tiny St John's Cathedral or one of the various museums of Cypriot history and culture before you return to your hotel?

  • Today’s tour begins with a visit to the mountain-top castle of St Hilarion and beautiful village of Bellapais – home to the preserved ruins of a Gothic abbey. This idyllic spot was home for three years to celebrated writer Lawrence Durrell, who chronicled his stay here in his novel Bitter Lemons. Wander the ruins of the abbey, stepping back in time, before heading to Kyrenia with its horseshoe-shaped harbour and entrance to the imposing medieval castle – a picture-perfect scene enhanced by the festive decorations of the cafés and shops that fringe the harbour at this time of year.

  • Today’s optional excursion gives you the chance to explore the unspoilt Karpas Peninsula, a rugged spit of land fringed by some of the island's bluest waters, dotted with old villages, home to herds of wild donkeys and the remote Apostolos Andreas monastery, famous for its holy well. You’ll also visit an olive oil producer and – weather permitting – Golden Beach.

  • Choose to relax in the comfort of your hotel or explore your surroundings, today. 

  • Choose to relax in the comfort of your hotel or explore your surroundings, today. Why not take a leisurely wander along the beach towards Salamis?

  • Spend your day relaxing and enjoying your hotel facilities as you build up to New Year’s Eve celebrations, accompanied by live music.

  • After a relaxing morning, you’ll have another chance to stretch your legs and get some fresh air by visiting historic Kantara Castle on an optional half-day excursion this afternoon.

  • A second opportunity to visit historic Nicosia on an optional excursion.

  • Rest and relax at the hotel, or visit Kyrenia and Bellapais for a second time on our optional excursion.

  • Your final optional excursion gives you the chance to explore the unspoiled Karpas Peninsula once more.

  • Bid farewell to your Cypriot hosts, and transfer back to the airport for your flight home.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour and 10 minutes from Larnaca and two hours and 30 minutes from Paphos.

  • Shops in Europe will generally close from early afternoon on Christmas Eve until 27th December. Included tours and excursions have been chosen for their scenic or historic value.

  • 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.
  • Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.
  • European Union citizens travelling across the border from Southern Cyprus to Northern Cyprus must have passports valid for at least two months beyond the date of their crossing. Visitors from outside the EU must have passports valid for at least six months beyond the date of their crossing.

  • New rules now apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months validity left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old. These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    The current European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) remains valid although when this expires you will need to apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note both EHIC and GHIC are only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
    Mobile Roaming
    It seems currently unlikely that roaming charges will be introduced by UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel though, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
