them you’ll understand why. Blue Flag sands are ranked by limestone cliffs draped with tilting palm trees. The lively holiday resorts of Paphos and Limassol receive the lion’s share of the visitors. At first glance, you’ll notice karaoke bars, Irish pubs, and restaurants that serve Sunday roast and moussaka in equal portions. But look a bit closer and you’ll see the Cypriot charm that hasn’t been lost with the arrival of the tourists. Discover the old part of Paphos, historic Greece with its temples, churches and forts,  A must-see is the Tomb of the Kings – these Egyptian catacombs are carved out of solid rock.
