Just before the Christmas holiday we decided to visit the Cypriot Capital of Nicosia. Our base for our visit was the homely Averof hotel, after unpacking we took a walk down to the “Old Town” which is situated inside the ancient Venetian star shaped walls. The Old town is a wonderful place to just wander and explore the narrow streets.
After lunch we visited one of the buffer zones that sadly divides the City, we climbed the viewing tower that overlooks No mans land.
We returned to the old town in the evening to look at the suberb display of Christmas lights.
