Greece may be a perennial hotspot, but it’s far from the only Mediterranean gem worth noting. Looking to expand your travel horizons? It’s time to set your sights on Cyprus.
Originally settled by Mycenaean Greeks, the island nation offers archaeological ruins, ornate churches, and mouth-watering traditional cuisine. Add to that stunning natural scenery.
Another benefit of this low-key locale is that it’s far less touristy and much cheaper than its flocked-to counterpart. That’s good news for both crowd-averse and budget-conscious travellers. And according to the European Union’s 2012 Eurobarometer study, 73% of the country speaks English.
