Cyprus, situated in the eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea is an island republic of spectacular beauty. It is a historic island, the third largest in the Mediterranean and a living mosaic of cultures. It is an island with a history of romance and was once Anthony’s gift to Cleopatra.  According to the Greek mythology, Aphrodite - the goddess of beauty and love - first emerged from the sea out of a sea shell. Maybe that is why you feel always a little bit eroticized once you set your feet on this island.


The city of Limassol is a major hub of tourists
