Nicosia - excursions and day trips

Whether you are looking for a day trip to Cyprus or a way to spend a few days in the country, Nicosia is a great destination. This is because it is the biggest city in the country and offers visitors the opportunity to see the country from a variety of angles. There are many things to do in Nicosia. You can check out the historical sites and learn about the culture. There are also lots of things to do in the area surrounding the city.

One of the best ways to experience the landscape of Cyprus is to take a walking tour. These tours are led by qualified guides and include explanations of the landscape, panoramic views and historic landmarks. You can also visit quiet, picturesque villages in the countryside. These are perfect for taking a break from the crowded atmosphere of the city.

Another option for a day trip is to travel to the northern part of the island. There are several attractions in this area, including the Ocean Aquarium. This attraction features many different species of marine animals, including colorful saltwater fish and fierce looking piranhas from South America. You can also visit the 5th century church of Ayios Philion and the olive oil factory. You will also have the chance to enjoy lunch on the sea.


Leaving the city, you can head for the Troodos Mountains, where you can see a number of ancient sites. You can also take a bus to the mountain village of Fikardou. You can then take a walk to the Tochni nature trail, which is about 3 km long.

A private tour can also be booked for your day. This type of tour can take you to many locations in the country, including the Walled City of Famagusta, UNESCO-listed St. Nicholas of the Roof, the 13th century Belpais Monastery, and the Troodos Mountains.

You can also take a day trip to Kyrenia. This coastal town has a history dating back to the 6th century, but is today a popular resort city. The most prominent landmark is the Selimiye Mosque, which is a cross between a French Gothic church and a mosque. This building has a fascinating history, and you can find out more about its origins by visiting the museum.


A few other places to visit are the BrewFellas pub, which sells international craft beers, and the Pivo Microbrewery, which makes a few beers and has a few games and drinks to offer. You can also check out the Lost & Found cocktail bar, which is known for its original cocktails. You can also enjoy a night out at the Granazi Art Space, which hosts live music on some nights.

Regardless of what you choose to do in Nicosia, it is important to remember that you will need to have a passport in order to enter the country. This can be done in a matter of minutes, and the border crossing is straightforward. Both sides will scan your passport, and neither will require you to show it.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website.

After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
