Enjoy the Cypriot cuisine, the picturesque beaches and the natural beauty of southern Cyprus, including rental car, cooking class and flights
Soft sheep's cheese, crispy swordfish, halloumi with roasted vegetables ... healthy yet hearty, you'll certainly look forward to each meal on this tranquil break. Cyprus shares many flavours with nearby countries, but Cypriot cuisine is especially close to refreshing Greek food. Whether you're nibbling on meze (Cyprus' equivalent to tapas), souvlaki (thinly sliced pieces of meat served on pita bread with pickled lettuce, hummus and tzatziki), moussaka or fresh fish such as tuna and swordfish, there's a taste of Cyprus for everyone! There's also plenty of culture outside the kitchen on this trip, too. Thanks to the freedom of your own rental car, you can explore the beauty of southern Cyprus on your own. Here you will find fine sandy beaches like the Blue Lagoon, where the deep blue colour of the water feels like a dream. How about a visit to Nicosia, which is the last divided capital in the world, the Akamas peninsula, where Aphrodite is said to have bathed, or a visit to the mountainous landscape of Troodos, where you will find pine forests and many hiking trails. Let's go, there's plenty in store on this trip.

A diverse landscape tantalising Mediterranean waves, rich cultural heritage and the friendly warmth of the locals - there's plenty to discover in Cyprus.
