Discover Northern Cyprus
Few places are as uniquely positioned as Cyprus, at the exhilarating crossroads between Europe, Asia and Africa. For thousands of years, the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, has seduced travellers with the promise of endless summers, windswept beaches, and romantic harbours.
Successive invasions by powerful neighbouring empires, each leaving traces of their culture, have created a rich and complex heritage, plus some of the world’s most significant archaeological sites and best preserved villages.
