Description

Primarily an exploration trip of the stone-built old quarter of Kakopetria village and the UNESCO World Heritage Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis painted church.

Itinerary
  • Pay a visit to Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis expand_more

    Visit one of the ten UNESCO World Heritage Troodos Painted Churches in Cyprus, a must-do activity. The laid-back old part of Kakopetria village offers an excellent example of Cyprus' rural architecture and a collection of attractions like a traditional man-powered olive press. Expect a nature walk-up in almost unique Troodos, along with a meal at one of the few village restaurants. 

  • Take Artemis Trail on Mount Olympusexpand_more

    Besides a short walk at the stream next to old Kakopetria, and subject to time availability, you can also make your way on Artemis circular trail. For an itinerary from Limassol, we could include instead Caledonia Waterfalls trail, the shorter Pano Platres - Myllomeris Waterfall trail, or even a short walk at Kelephos Medieval Venetian Bridge.
