Although winter in Cyprus can get quite chilly and there is even snow up in the Troodos mountain range, there are still many dry and balmy days when it feels more like spring thanks to the winter sunshine. This means that you are not confined to the indoors and can still get out and about to explore and discover, and what better place to do so than in Larnaka, where you will find more than enough to keep you busy. In this season's newsletter we discover new walks, new museums and new sightseeing tours, as well as the publication of a new in-depth guide that will help you decide where to head to first!

New Bins in Tourist Areas
The Cyprus Tourism Organisation and the Larnaka Tourism Board have recently provided new, much-needed rubbish bins in the areas of Pyla, Voroklini and Lefkara.
