Meet the tour leader at 13:00 hrs for check in on Emirates Airlines flight to Larnaca in Cyprus departing at 14:55hrs. Upon arrival, your private coach will head towards Kyrenia in Northern Cyprus. Check-in, room allocation and dinner (optional) will follow before overnight.
Today, join the tour leader for a day excursion to Kyrenia. Stride up the honey-toned stone ramparts of Kyrenia Castle (entrance included), before heading towards Bellapais monastery (entrance included). Originally built in the 12th century by monks fleeing Palestine after the fall of Jerusalem, the site remains much as it was in 1976, when the last of the stoic Orthodox faithful had to leave. Later head towards St. Hilarion Castle (entrance included). Later return to your hotel in time for dinner (optional) and overnight.
Soon after breakfast join your tour leader for another optional excursion to Nicosia. Bisected since 1964 into Lefkosia and Lefkosia, Nicosia is a curious mix vibrant street-life and rich history. The splendid Selimiye Mosque (entrance included), once the Gothic Cathedral of St Sofia, lords over the city. During your free time you can cross the no-man’s land from north to south at the Ledra Street checkpoint, where hectic bazaar stalls give way to fancy boutique windows, Turkish signs morph into Greek script, and street-side chatter switches to different sounds.
After breakfast join the tour leader for a day excursion to the beautiful coastal walled city of Famagusta. Winding lanes rimmed with terrace rows of houses suddenly give way to ruined Gothic churches, the most famous of which is the former Cathedral of Saint Nicholas. You will also visit the monastery of Saint Barnabas and the ancient-city-kingdom of Salamis. Later head back to your hotel for The New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner filed with sumptuous food and entertainment.
After (late) breakfast enjoy your day in Kyrenia. Take a much-deserved drink in the hotel’s pool bar or head to Kyrenia’s old harbour (extra) and enjoy the local cuisine. Later rejoint hr group for your farewell dinner (optional) before overnight.
After breakfast and checkout head towards Larnaca airport for check in of your return flight back to Malta departing at 11:35 hrs
