Treasures of Troodos

The journey into the Troodos Mountains is spectacular. You’ll pass small villages and get a glimpse of traditional Cypriot life. As you travel high in the pine-clad Troodos Mountains you’ll find the Kykkos Monastery. The monastery is ornately decorated with wonderful mosaics in bright colours. It is also renowned for its wealth, with many gold icons and beautifully preserved frescoes. Spectacular, endless views of the valleys from Throni Hill, where you’ll visit the Tomb of late Archbishop MakariosIII, situated in a guarded cave. Some free time will be available for you during the day, go for a stroll around Troodossquare. Follow the smell of fresh nuts and try the sweet wine you’ll be offered. Free time for lunch will be given in Pedoulas village, situated on the northern flanks of the Troodos range.
