Cyprus Flights GuideThe third-largest island in the Mediterranean sea, Cyprus (Kypros in Greek) boasts beautiful coastal cities and a rich historical feel. Known for its beaches, the country also cultivates a wine industry based out of its less-easily accessible interior. It also a country divided, with the Turkey claiming the north as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the independent south claiming themselves as the Republic of Cyprus. A tantalizing aura of mystique exists on the island due to the famed Cult of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. For a better sense of the cult's beliefs, head to Paphos, located on the Southwest coast, where you can also visit the Tombs of Kings and man other famed archeological ruins. For those who prefer a more outdoorsy vibe, head to the centrally-located Troodos Mountains, where you can ski down the country's highest point, Mount Olympus.
Culturally, Cyprus is Greek, and this is reflected in the means traveler's can access the island. Cyprus Air is the country's main airline, but there are also several between Greece and Cyprus. The best time to visit this historically vibrant country is really whenever you can arrange a trip, as the island has long, dry summers between May and October, and mild winters from December through February.
