I spent a week under the Cypriot sun exploring the gorgeous island full of wine villages, waterfalls, quaint towns and seaside getaways. Here is my travel guide to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus for those lucky enough to visit this paradise.
How to Get to Cyprus
The airline that frequents the island most often is Aegean Airlines, although many major European airlines fly there too. There are no direct flights from North America, so you will have a layover (I had one in London - check out my layover city guide for London!). You will fly into one of the two international airports: Paphos or Larnaca.
How to Get Around Cyprus
By far the easiest way to get around is with a car in order to reach the distant and wonderful gems of the island. I did see many tour buses everywhere we went which is an excellent alternative to driving.
