Cyprus, the third largest island in the Mediterranean, just 40 miles off the southern coast of Turkey, is divided into two with the Turkish residing in the Northern part and the Greeks in the South. The border between the two countries was opened in 2003 allowing European passport holders and locals to travel to and from each side freely 24 hours a day, meaning cheap flight deals can be sought from one of the three airports in Cyprus. Ercan, Larnaca and Pafos.
Cyprus's strategic position has meant that it has been a stepping-stone between the East and the West throughout history of the ancient world. Cyprus has had a diverse history stretching over more than 9000 yrs from the stone ages to present times. Aphrodite the Goddess of Beauty and love is said to have been born on the island, which is also documented to have been a present to Queen Cleopatra as a token of love and affection from the Roman Emperor Julius Cesar. These are but a few tiles of the rich mosaic of events in the history of Cyprus.
