We want our guests to experience something special during their stays with us, as great experiences create great memories.
The Cyprus Museum
The Cyprus Museum is the largest archaeological museum on the island, showcasing the development of Cyprus’ civilization from the Neolithic Age to the Early Byzantine period. Its extensive collections include pottery, jewellery, sculpture, coins, and other artefacts exhibited in chronological order.
Notable pieces include the cross-shaped idol, Early Bronze Age pottery, golden jewellery from the Late Bronze Age, and the statue of Aphrodite from Soloi.
The museum building, constructed between 1908 and 1924 during British colonial rule, underwent multiple extensions. It is also associated with the Aphrodite Cultural Route, offering a glimpse into Cyprus’ rich cultural heritage.
A new, modern building is currently under construction near the existing museum to replace the British colonial-era structure from 1908. The upcoming facility will feature permanent exhibition spaces to accommodate 6,500 antiquities, along with areas dedicated to periodical exhibitions, educational programs, conservation workshops, a library, and an amphitheatre.

This landmark Gallery is a tribute to our shared European heritage and offers an immersive experience for visitors of all ages.
Laiki Geitonia, situated within the pedestrian area of the walled city of Nicosia, is a charming traditional neighborhood.
It serves as a prime illustration of traditional Cypriot urban architecture, with its meticulously restored houses dating back to the late 18th century.
These buildings primarily employ wood, sandstone, and mudbrick as construction materials. Laiki Geitonia captivates visitors with its narrow winding streets, exclusively designated for pedestrians, where residential houses coexist harmoniously with craft shops, souvenir boutiques, and tavernas.
Venetian Walls & Famagusta Gate
The grandiose walls which surround the old town have a brilliant tale to tell. Built between 1567 and 1570 by the ruling of the Venetians, they worked hard to erect a circular fortified wall around the original city, complete with heart-shaped bastions.
Have a look at what used to stand as the entrance points to the city by visiting Famagusta Gate in one of the nicest parts of the old town.
Located just a stone’s throw away from Famagusta Gate and positioned across the old aqueduct, the Liberty Monument captivates throngs of people seeking a deeper understanding of the island’s history.
Unveiled in 1973, this grand monument stands as a tribute to the valiant EOKA fighters who participated in the 1955-1959 liberation struggle.
Its imposing structure showcases multiple statues, symbolizing the essence of freedom as two EOKA fighters strain to open a prison gate, granting escape to Cypriot prisoners, peasants, and clergy from under the grip of British rule.
The Leventis Municipal Museum
The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia houses a diverse and extensive collection of Cypriot works, ranging from archaeological artifacts and costumes to photographs, medieval pottery, maps, engravings, jewels, and furniture.
This captivating museum provides a comprehensive narrative of the social development and history of the city of Nicosia, spanning from the Chalcolithic period (3000 BC) to the present day.
Visitors can immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of the region through the carefully curated exhibits that showcase the fascinating evolution of the city over time.
Constructed in 1872, this magnificent church stands proudly within the ancient city walls, commanding the attention of all who encounter it.
Its impressive presence extends to the surrounding square, which serves as a bustling center of activity.
Visitors can relish the vibrant atmosphere, indulging in the pleasure of sitting at the charming cafes that encircle the church.
The Archbishop’s Palace, situated in Nicosia, serves as the official residence and administrative center for the archbishop of Cyprus.
Built between 1956 and 1960 in the neo-Byzantine architectural style, it stands adjacent to the “Old Archbishop’s Palace” dating back to the 17th century. Previously, the palace grounds housed the bronze sculpture of Makarios III, the first president of Cyprus, sculpted by Nikolas Kotziamannis.
However, the statue has since been relocated to the Kykkos Monastery. Weighing approximately 13 tons and towering at 30 feet, it remains a remarkable artistic feat. While the Archbishop’s Palace itself is not accessible to the public, the Byzantine Museum, Library of the Archbishopric, Folk Art Museum, and the National Struggle Museum, located on its premises, welcome visitors.
