Cyprus’s capital Nicosia is split by an ugly ‘green line’, effectively dividing the city into two, since Turkey invaded Cyprus in 1974. However it doesn’t detract from the magnificent history that both sides offer, and tourists are free to cross on day trips.

Explore Nicosia

The old town of Nicosia is surrounded by 16th-century Venetian walls and is the most interesting part of the city. The Leventis Municipal museum is a great tour to finding out the hsitory of Island, once dominated by Mycenaeans, Byzantiums, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Persians, Assyrians and even the Knights Templer. The Dragoman Hadzigeorgakis is another museum housed in a gorgeous 15th-century mansion. Just east of the Leventis you'll find the museum of culture. Visit the Byzantine museum, for some fabulous works of art, including many religious icons and mosaics.

The well preserved, beautiful Famagusta Gate, which was originally the entrance to Nicosia, found on the eastern wall, is now used as a cultural centre. Just outside the city walls is the city centre and municipal gardens, where the modern town and tourist facilities, along with restaurants and bars, are located, a great lace to relax and unwind.

Atatürk Square is the centre of the North, and nearby is the well-preserved Kyrenia Gate. The Turkish museum, inside a 17th-century monastery, is worthwhile and the 13th century Selimiye mosque is one of the finest examples of gothic architecture in the country. Another popular place is the Büyük Hammam, the city's largest Turkish baths, which can be a fun day out.

The north coast is the closest to Lefkosia, and there is a resort at Kyrenia, featuring good tourist facilities and a castle. But most visitors limit their holiday to the south and head for the great resorts of Lanarca, Limmasol, Paphos, and the party land of Ayia Napa. The mountains of the Troödos region, with a number of incredible monasteries, are easily reachable by car from Lefkosia, and provide a rewarding day trip.


Nicosia has a brand new motorway network connecting the city with Limassol and Paphos, so hiring a car is a great idea for getting around the island using these modern roads. We offer car hire at the cheapest available prices online from over fifty popular, well used car hire companies. Book today to secure a vehicle for your holiday. If you are flying into Larnaca Airport, the closest airport to Nicosia approximately a 40 minute drive south by car, then ensure to arrange collecting and dropping off the vehicle here.

Buses operate throughout Nicosia with OSEL services, which is great for tourists not wishing to hire a rental vehicle.

Taxis also service this area although they are run on a meter so can get expensive if used regularly.
