Your tour begins at your Ayia Napa hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for Kakopetria, a quaint village famed for its streams and miniature waterfall. On arrival here, you’ll have free time to explore.

Return to your vehicle for a scenic drive through the Troodos Mountains: stop off at Throni, perched on the summit of the mountains, to enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes. Opt to visit the tomb of Archbishop Makarios III, the first President of Cyprus, before you proceed to the Kykkos Monastery.

Founded by Byzantines in the 11th century, the monastery boasts a gorgeous shrine to the Virgin Mary, decorated with tortoiseshell and mother-of-pearl. Spend free time here, opting to visit the monastery and purchase lunch.

Please note that a dress code must be followed in order to visit the monastery. (No shorts or sleeveless tops; knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women.)

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Ayia Napa hotel.

Lang onderweg met veel russen

Volgens viator zouden we met maximaal 10 personen op pad gaan. We waren dan ook verbaasd dat er een touringcar voor kwam rijden die ramvol zat. Het Troodos gebergte is prachtig, maar we zijn 10 uur onderweg geweest voor 1 dorpje, een mausoleum en een klooster wat ingericht lijkt voor het toerisme.

Dear traveler, thank your for your comment. Your feedback is very important for us and helps us to improve. Nevertheless we would like to point out, that this excursion is not advertised for a maximum of 10 persons, we do mention that there is big coach with up to 50 guests. We are sorry if something has been misunderstood. The visited monastery of Kykkos is the most famous and richest monastery of the Island and therefore on busy days there are numerous visitors from all over the world to expect. It is a must see of Cyprus. We are sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations and once again thank your for your review.
