Situated in the eastern Mediterranean, the beautiful island of Cyprus is an interesting mixture of western European culture with a touch of the East thanks to its location close to Africa and Asia. Cyprus is a relatively small island but it is packed with fantastic beaches and resorts, ancient history including Greek and Roman remains and Greek mythology.

Cyprus is divided by a ‘green line’ which divides north from south, with Turkish Cyprus in the north and Greek Cyprus in the south. Most visitors head to southern Cyprus where most of the tourist resorts are located - its capital Nicosia is unique as it is also divided by the green line.

Cyprus is often known as the ‘Island of Aphrodite’ due to the legend of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, who rose from the sea. Cyprus has a host of attractions which draw a huge number of visitors each year, not least its year-round sunshine, long warm summers and mild winters.
