As the last divided capital in the world, Nicosia is a fascinating city to explore offering you a glimpse of two very different worlds.

This tour starts in the Cypriot southern sector and crosses the Green Line buffer zone to explore the Turkish-occupied north. Your first stop is the St. John’s Cathedral built in Franco-Byzantine style. Next up is a walking tour through the historic streets of Laiki Geitonia inside the Venetian city walls. It’s a maze of winding streets with churches, squares and ornate buildings.

After crossing the Green Line, you’ll hear tales of the city’s history and culture as you tick off some of the main sites - Ayia Sofia Church and Market Square included. Then cross back into the southern sector to Ledra Street and embrace modern city life under your own steam.
