Embark on an Enthralling Journey Through Timeless Nicosia

To truly immerse yourself in the authentic essence of a foreign land, you require a guide who embodies the very soul of the culture you seek to explore. Allow me to be your personal time-travelling companion as we traverse the historic streets of Nicosia, the capital of the island and the only European capital that proudly straddles two distinct parts. Nestled within the old town of Nicosia, a hidden gem awaits, encircled by the remarkably preserved Venetian walls that stand as a testament to a bygone era. Once accessible only through three fabled Gates, we will journey together to discover the Kyrenia and Famagusta Gates. Our expedition will unveil captivating sites such as the the Buffer Zone, Kyrenia Gate, Tahtakale Houses, Omerge Hamam, Samanbahce Quarter, Venetian Column, St. Sophia Cathedral, Bedesten, and Bandabuliya, among others. At Buyuk Han, a stunning 16th-century caravanserai, be captivated by the alluring charm of its souvenir shops and enchanting atmosphere. As we indulge in the delectable local borek and the aromatic Cypriot coffee, I will regale you with tales and insights that only a native Nicosian can provide. Born and raised within the very heart of Nicosia, I am uniquely positioned to offer you an experience like no other. Join me on this mesmerizing tour for a day brimming with history, culture, and laughter that you'll cherish for a lifetime.

This was a wonderful tour. I am a retired history professor and if I was doing an evaluation she would get top marks! She knows her history and she is very interesting.
