Best of Troodos – Mountains & Villages



    Visit the charming mountain Villages on the island and the magnificent Kykkos Monastery.

    Our first stop will be at the picturesque Village of Laneia, walk through the beautiful flower lined streets and stone houses. We will see the Old Wine press of the village, as well as the Olive Mill.

    Next stop will be in Troodos Mountains Square, in the surroundings of the pinewoods, you may enjoy a coffee break and wander around the Stalls selling traditional products.

    Continuing up the mountains with beautiful forest views, we will arrive at the island’s most famous and wealthiest monastery – Kykkos.  Founded at the end of the 11th century and dedicated to the Virgin Mary. With its impressive gold decoration, paintings and mosaics, the monastery possesses a precious icon of the Virgin Mary painted by the Apostle Luke.
    Following on the peak of the mountain, we will have the opportunity to visit the stunning (Throni tis Panagias) of Kykkos. Well worth it, to experience the wonderful views of the beauty of nature all around; it is here that during long periods of drought, the monks of the nearby Kykkos Monastery used to climb to the top of the mountain, place the Virgin Mary icon on a wooden “throne” and pray for rain. It is also the location of the tomb of the first President of the Republic of Cyprus Archbishop Makarios III.

    Next, you will have time to relax and enjoy lunch at a nearby mountain traditional restaurant.
    After lunch, we will visit a winery for wine tasting, located in the island’s best grape region. Here you can try a variety of locally produced exquisite wines, including the famous “Commandaria”, which is one of the oldest named wines in the world.

    Lastly, we will stop at Omodos village; where you can visit Timios Stavros Church of the Holy Cross; the local bakery, try a Cypriot coffee made in the traditional way.
