Meze is a delightful way to get to know the area's cuisine by tantalising the taste buds with an array of tiny dishes. Cypriot cuisine has some culinary celebrities owing to Turkish, Greek, and Middle Eastern food traditions, including halloumi and kebabs. Make sure there are a few sweet items on the menu. Sweet pastries include Baklava, which is flavoured with almonds and honey. Also, enjoy the cafe culture that is littered across the island.
The ancient ruins at Kourion have magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea. The site was an important city during the Roman period and had interesting remains, including a theatre, baths and houses. Whilst in Paphos, one can enjoy the archaeological sites of Pafos Castle, Tombs of Kings and the Pafos Mosaics.
The island country is a predominantly Christian nation with many churches and monasteries within its boundaries, including the Monastery of Kyoko. The tallest mountain range on the island is Troodos, which has some great hiking routes and a ski resort in winter.
The rugged coastline offers diverse beaches different from one another, but they are all just as beautiful. There are pebbly shores and sandy ones with calm waters to swim. Some of the best beaches include Lara beach, Aphrodite's Rock and Fig Tree Bay.
