From the Lusignans who crowned their Kings in the beautiful St. Nicholas Cathedral, to the Ottomans who later converted it to a mosque, each century has left its mark on Famagusta. The Old City's narrow streets are full of small shops, where locals display their wares, from fine examples of silver, copper and ceramic work, to fresh fruit and vegetables, not to mention the finest pastries and lokum (Turkish Delight) on the island.
The area is also famous for its sandy Caribbean like beaches. Karpas Penisula One of the least developed parts of Cyprus, the Karpaz peninsula resembles the Mediterranean of old, its traditional way of life unchanged for generations. Eco tourism is a fast developing sector in this area and attracts local and foreign visitors alike, helping the local economy and its people at the same time. The deserted sandy beaches, great walking routes, historical sites and superb food are some of the many highlights. We recommend that you stay for at least a few nights, however, a longer stay will give you a far better opportunity to relax and explore the area to the full.

The opera was a joy and the Gold Seats were certainly worth the extra. Discovery Collection’s organisation and selections were faultless and ensured a delightful holiday.
