Our first stop is Kykkos Monastery founded by the Byzantines in 1092. Kykkos is renowned for its wealth and features gold icons, preserved frescoes and bright mosaics. Kykkos is dedicated to Virgin Mary and also possesses one of the three surviving icons ascribed to Saint Luke. The miraculous icon, which is covered in silver gilt and enclosed in a shrine of tortoise shell and mother-of-pearl, holds an eminent position in the church. We then drive to Prodomos and free time will be given to have lunch (optional extra). We then drive to Omodos, and visit the Holy Cross Monastery.
Our final stop is at the Rock of Aphrodite, which is the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty and love. According to Greek mythology, as soon as Aphrodite was born, white sea foam carried her in the sea, from Kythera in Greece to Cyprus. As per the legend, anyone who swims around the Rock will be blessed with eternal beauty! Time will be given for photos and swimming before we drive back to the east coast of the island.
