Description

Rural Cyprus is at your fingertips on this whistle-stop tour. The morning kicks off with the first stop at Petra Tou Romiou for photographs (available only for guests from Paphos town and Pissouri Hotels). Aphrodite’s mythical birthplace ‘Petra Tou Romiou’ is an interesting geological formation of huge rocks along with one of the most beautiful coastlines on the island. 

Then you will continue with a visit to Kourion–one of the most impressive archaeological sites on the island. It’s classic Greco-Roman, with a half-moon of seats facing out to sea. 

Kolossi Castle is the next stop. This Crusader-era castle is surrounded by flowering plants and a pretty courtyard. 

Hop back on the air-conditioned bus and head to the mountain-ringed village of Omodos where you will have a guided walk through the village and lunch. 

Lastly, you will have the opportunity to taste traditional Cyprus wine in a local winery before heading back to the resorts.

Please note: This tour includes hotel pick up and drop off service. Simply select your hotel from the list under the availability section and our driver will be on his way! Pick up time from your hotel will be advised after the booking.

Rich History

An excellent tour if you want to understand the history of the island. Ancient ruins by the sea and a medieval castle that is connected with the Crusades and the Knights. We headed up the hill to charming Omodos village and the wine country. We had some awesome people, with much knowledge on every step.Very educational tour.
