Later head back to your hotel for dinner (optional) and overnight.
FRIDAY 29 MARCH | Join the tour leader for yet another full day excursion, this time to the wonderfully preserved walled old city of Famagusta.

This remote part of the beautiful island of Cyprus features herds of goats, flocks of sheep, untouched sandy beaches, migrating birds, wild flowers and the world famous feral donkeys.
