A Road Trip in Cyprus
Chances are that you will arrive in Cyprus either at Lanarca or Paphos airport, where you will rent a car. Driving in Cyprus is easy, highways are really good and other roads are in good conditions too. Driving in the Troodos mountains is charming but these are mountains road so drive carefully and let locals pass you. Do I need to mention that you must drive on the left hand side, like in the UK?
Finding accommodations is also really easy for any budget and Booking is your friend! Some beach resorts are less than ideal in my opinion but there are some for every taste.
Best seasons for me to visit are spring and autumn, if you want to be able to visit all those places and not burn in the sun!
Overall, Cyprus is really an ideal destination where you will be able to enjoy a variety of activities. From historical places to beautiful hikes and relaxing beaches.
