Itinerary
  • Walk over Kelephos Medieval Venetian Bridgeexpand_more

    Kelephos Medieval Venetian Bridge blends Cyprus' cultural heritage with its nature. It lies inside the expansive Paphos Forest, home to a few thousands of wild sheep Mouflon. According to tradition, the bridge is found on a path that was used by camel caravans to transport mined material to Paphos port for export. 

    Depending on time availability we may do a walk at the bridge and the nearby valley of Platy, stop for a meal at a village restaurant, go for a winetasting session or visit other attractions.

  • Spend time in Omodos stone-built villageexpand_more

    The rather busy Omodos village is found in a prime wine-producing area of Cyprus. The village offers an excellent example of Cyprus' rural architecture and a collection of attractions like a traditional man-powered olive press. At its center, one finds the historic monastery of the Holy Cross dating back to the second century AD. According to tradition, it was visited by St Helen in the third century AD; she left a piece of the rope used in Christ's Crucifixion there, sadly the monastery doesn't operate anymore.

    This village is an excellent base for any trip in the area as its local architecture combines with a developed tourism infrastructure that includes restaurants, coffee places, shops selling local produce and artifacts (and public restrooms).
