Greek and Turkish Parts


An amazing city, from the Neolithic Age until today. Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus since the 12th century AD. It's built on layers of tradition, and culture, both from the Western Europe, as well as the Middle East. Its medieval center is circled by a unique fortification system with 3 doors and 11 bastions, built by the Venicians.
We will walk in the city within the walls, both in the Greek part as well as in the Turkish part, through the dividing line and try to understand the history of the city.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marina was a very sweet woman who customized a half day tour exactly to my request. She had a very in depth knowledge of her country's history, but didn't overwhelm one with it. I highly recommend her for religious and museum related tours, she keeps the process moving right along. Marina went the extra mile helping me ship the items home I had purchased, a rarity in my travels. Thank you Marina for a great experience in Nicosia! Dave S. From the US
