This beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea is packed with beautiful beaches, ancient cities and remains from more than 3000 years of history. I have been to the capital Nicosia, to the most beautiful beaches close to Agia Napa and to the highest mountain of the island, Mount Olympos. Also Paphos is worth visiting it.
