Breakfast will be ready at the hotel. We will embark on a tour of Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus, which is divided into two parts: the North, which has been occupied by the Turkish army since 1974, and the South, which is under the control of the Republic of Cyprus. Our first stop will be at Laiki Yitonia and the narrow old streets of the old town. We will then visit the Archaeological Museum, which provides us with a fascinating glimpse into the rich history of the island. Later, our tour will take us to the Green Line, which is always manned by UNO forces and divides the two parts of the country. We will visit the Archbishopric and the famous St. John's Cathedral before driving to Kakopetria Village. Located 55 kilometers southwest of Nicosia, on the foothills of the Troodos Mountain, Kakopetria is a charming traditional village standing at an altitude of 667 meters and is the highest village in the Solea Valley. Here, we will explore the old Kakopetria area, which features stone-paved roads and well-preserved traditional Cyprus houses. We will also visit the Panayia Podithou Church, built in 1502, and the Church of Archangel Michael in Galata village before continuing to the Panagia Assinou Church in the village of Nikitari. This 12th-century church boasts excellent examples of wall paintings. Overnight in Larnaca.
