Start with a view of the Sea Caves, the island's banana plantations, and a shipwreck in the immediate vicinity. Visit a local winery and tour the Botanical Gardens before experiencing a boat ride to the Blue Lagoon.

Observe the island's banana plantations close by, filled with trees with broad, palm-like leaves waving leisurely in the sunshine. Admire fragrant herbs and shrubs while you luxuriate in the cooling touch of the sea breeze in the Botanical Gardens. Stroll along the Baths of Aphrodite Trail and enjoy panoramic views of Paphos' Forest and the town of Polis Chrysochous. Watch fishing boats come and go at Latchi Harbor. Take photos of the Akamas Nature Reserve on your way to the Blue Lagoon by ship. Sip wine and fruit juice, and nibble on fresh fruit while you enjoy the view, and swim in the clear blue water beneath the cloudless sapphire sky.

Omodos Village and Kelephos Medieval Bridge Tour

5. Omodos Village and Kelephos Medieval Bridge Tour

Start your tour by heading to the Krassohoria wine villages. First, you will go to the expansive Paphos Forest and visit Kelephos' medieval Venetian bridge, which according to tradition is built on a camel trail. The trail was apparently used by camel caravans to transport mined material from the mines on the north side of the Troodos mountains to Paphos port. The local stream has water throughout the year. The setting is beautiful, with higher water flow during the rainy season and with more greenery in summer when the alders have their leaves and the bracken are full of life. You'll then move to Omodos village, one of the largest villages of Krasochoria. For years it has been well-known for its vineyards and wine and is still today known for its prime produce. Omodos developed around the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross (connected to St. Helen’s Passage to Cyprus) and is a popular destination for visitors. If you prefer, you can visit a less touristy village, for example Arsos or Vasa.

What people are saying about Limassol

A day before you get the exact pick-up time so no waiting at the pick-up point. A new minibus then picked us up on time. The tour had many different tastes and information on how the products are made. That's why you should be open to new things for this tour. The highlight is certainly the lunch, with many different local dishes. We also liked the contact with the manufacturers, sometimes in their private rooms, which you don't have otherwise. A great day!
