Limassol – March 22 – 24
Pampered again aboard our private jet by the attentive flight crew we land in Larnaca and continue by road to our hotel in Limassol.
Our exploration of the island nation began with the lesser seen rural areas as we passed through traditional villages on our way to Omodos Village. Many traditional aspects of village life were demonstrated to us including baking and wine making techniques. After visiting the intriguing Monastery of Stavros, we enjoyed lunch in a local tavern where an astounding traditional folk dancer had us join in the fun with dancing and adding to the seemingly impossible number of drinking glasses balanced on the top of his head.
Our explorations continued in Paphos, the legendary home of Aphrodite, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Kingdom of Kourion. Here we saw historic monuments, incredible mosaics, and the 2nd century BCE amphitheater that is still being used for cultural events today.
Welcome back on board our private jet we are ready to continue west to Costa del Sol in Spain, a beautiful coastal area of the Iberian Peninsula.
