Breathtaking views from Pentadactylos mountains ridge and exploration of precious medieval Walled Famagusta. Walk around Walled Famagusta, a possible future UNESCO World Heritage site, with more than ten existing medieval churches, and visit Kantara Castle, one of three Byzantine castles on rugged Pentadactylos Mountains.

The trip combines two of Cyprus prime attractions:
From Agia Napa, Protaras, Larnaca or Nicosia we head north/north east and uphill to Kantara Castle.

Going south we stop at medieval Walled Famagusta for exploration and possibly visit a couple of different style and denominations churches, Othello's Castle and/or the Venetian Walls.
Lastly, if we have time, we may stop for a short swim or just to take a look next to the ghost town of Famagusta, before heading back to our base in Agia Napa, Protaras, Larnaca or Nicosia.
