Photography Tour of Cyprus

Stock Photography By Peter Shepherd

Cyprus is a small Mediterranean island but has a long history rich in culture that spans 10000 years, making it one of the oldest civilisations in the Mediterranean which is evidenced by the many fascinating cultural sights, museums, monuments and galleries on offer which this Photography Tour of Cyprus endeavoured to capture. Cyprus is further subdivided into the Southern Cyprus (the Greek side) and Northern Cyprus (the Turkish side) both of which were visited and showcased accordingly.
