/ MAIN / Excursions / Tours /Short Air breaks / TROODOS - KYKKOS MONASTERY

This tour takes you right to the heart of Cyprus, driving through a number of traditional mountain villages where life goes on as it has done for years. Passing just below mount Olympus, the largest and most famous monastery in Cyprus, Founded in 1092 by the Byzantines, this impressive building, set among the pine trees of Troodos, is where Archbishop Makarios, the first President of Cyprus, trained as a novice.

A visit to his tomb, just above at Throni Peak, is next on the agenda. On the return journey back down the mountainside we take a break at the picturesque village of Lania, home to many local artists, whose work is for sale in the many fascinating shops and art studios. Here you will have the chance to try the local spirit "Zivania" and "Commandaria" wine.
