Cyprus – Travel
Cyprus has a longstanding wine tradition with its most iconic wine “Commandaria” being the world’s oldest named wine still in production and it is said that it was served at the wedding of Richard Lionheart which took place on the island. The wine routes are specified itineraries, along which the visitor can visit various wine-producing villages and their wineries and participate in tasting, have a guided tour in their premises, and gain a very good knowledge of viticulture and winemaking. These routes also include other points of interest such as archaeological sites, museums, churches, and scenic views. Some routes include the Commandaria Wine Route, the Diarizos Valley Wine Route, the Pitsilia Wine route, and more.

These trails are of different levels of difficulty to satisfy more and less experienced visitors. Some trails include Ezousa Walking Trail, Millomeri Waterfall Trail, Ariadni Trail, Polistypos – Hazelnut Forest trail, etc.
