Fascinating history, art and excellent shopping: explore the best of the capital of Cyprus at your own pace on this day trip to Nicosia from Protaras.
Nicosia Day Trip
On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Protaras ready for your adventure to Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. During the drive, which takes about an hour and a half, your English-speaking guide will keep you entertained with fascinating facts about the city's lengthy history and its most important monuments.
Arriving in Nicosia, you'll have two hours of free time to explore its historic centre at your own pace. The Old Town is located within the intriguing circular defensive city walls built by the Venetians in the 16th century. Don't miss the Famagusta Gate, the historic entrance to the city in the Venetian Walls, and the Liberty Monument, which is dedicated to those who fought in the Cypriot fight for independence from Britain in the 1950s.
Another reminder of the conflicts that have plagued Cyprus is the Green Line, the Demilitarised Zone of Nicosia, which divides the city - and the entire island - in two. Not far from the Green Line, you'll find the capital's liveliest shopping area and a historic monument in its own right: Ledra Street.
After exploring Nicosia, you'll be taken to the outskirts of the city to make the most of another of its most popular retail centres: The Mall of Cyprus. Enjoy another two hours of free time here to shop and eat to your heart's content. At the end of the day, you'll return to hotels in Protaras.
