Heading inland, the spectacular Troodos Mountains range is home to the highest summit in Cyprus – Mount Olympus. Shirking Cyprus’s reputation for year-round sunshine, the peaks play host to four ski slopes that are packed with powdery white snow between December and March and just an hour’s drive from Limassol.

The capital of Cyprus is Nicosia and is if you’re staying in Limassol you are fortunate enough to be just a day jaunt from the island’s largest city. Referred to locally as ‘Lefkosia’, here you can explore the rich history of the capital through its museums, Venetian Walls and the Ledra Street Barricade, which is now one of the island’s busiest shopping streets.
