Nicosia, the last divided capital in the world and the primary commercial centre and headquarters of the Republic of Cyprus government, is often overlooked while visiting Cyprus because it is not a seaside city.
Nicosia’s old town was improved and is now extremely lovely, with numerous cafés, open-air restaurants, and stores nestled among the tiny lanes and graceful ancient houses.
The archaeological museum is world-renowned and should not be missed. Every Thursday, the Cyprus Tourist Office offers free walking tours. Because they cater to the local market, the restaurants in Nicosia are the best on the island.
The ancient, split inland city and hub of the island’s activity is not a resort, but rather a point of attraction and a convenient starting point for excursions.
