About Cyprus:

Nicosia old city 3   

 

 

 

 

 

Situated in the heart of the Eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus shares much of its culture and history with neighbors Greece and Turkey, but the island still maintains a distinctly different feel. Visitors to Cyprus today can still see enduring evidence of the architectural and cultural markings left behind by centuries of outside influence from mainland Europe, Africa and Asia. 

Nicosia, capital of Cyprus, still maintains strong ties to its historic roots via the preservation of the city's medieval neighborhoods, streets, markets and residences. Travelers looking for more modern forms of entertainment and leisure will enjoy Cyprus' many beaches, renowned restaurants and vibrant nightlife. In fact, though Nicosia is centrally located, the city is less than a hour's drive from popular Mediterranean beach towns like Larnaca, Paphos and Lemesos. In just a day you can soak up the sun on the coast, yet make it back to Nicosia by sunset, when the city's nightlife is just heating up.

Nicosia old city 2The EMGC will be held at the Hilton Cyprus in Nicosia, providing attendees with nearby access to the city center, the Old City and the capital's modern business district. With the conference scheduled for 14-15 March 2017, attendees visiting Cyprus for the first time will experience the Eastern Mediterranean during springtime, when the area's climate is most comfortable and mild. With mean daily temperatures of approximately 17°C (63°F), March in Nicosia is the perfect time to get out and do some sightseeing.

 

Below is a sampling of some things to do while visiting Nicosia, Cyprus:

Venetian Walls: Formerly used as military fortifications at the city's center, Nicosia boasts Venetian walls from the 16th century that are some of the most well-preserved architectural works of their kind.
Old City: Located inside the still-standing Venetian walls, the Old City features historical churches, mosques and homes in styles as varied as the settlers who have called Cyprus home over the centuries.
Makarios Avenue: The Hilton Cyprus is located on this main stretch of road that offers visitors an array of shopping experiences, from local vendors and European chains to designer outposts.
Cyprus Museum: Cyprus' first archaeological museum is home to the island's most extensive and impressive collection of artifacts and antiquities, many of which date back to the Bronze Age.Nicosia old city 4
The Green Line: A part of Cyprus' past and present, the Green Line bisects the city of Nicosia and represents the intersection of Greek and Turkish Cypriot culture on the island. Walking is the most popular way to experience this part of town.
Ethnological Museum (The House of Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios): This museum has been called "the most important example of urban architecture of the last century of Ottoman domination" and still stands in South Nicosia, locally known as Lefkosia.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites: If you are inclined to see more of the island while visiting Cyprus, the nation is home to several UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Choirokoitia, a Neolithic settlement south of Nicosia, and Paphos, home to the cult and legend of the Greek goddess Aphrodite.
Beach Life: Before the warmest summer weather sets in, a visit to any of the beaches at Larnaca, Paphos or Lemesos is a beautiful and can't-miss excursion. Both locals and visitors alike flock to the coast to relax and recharge.
