Cyprus: The Island of Aphrodite

November 1 - 10, 2018

Cyprus

Mystical and rich in history, Cyprus is at the crossroads of East and West. It is the futhermost point of the European Union. This modern island is steeped in culture and history. We will spend 10 days exploring the very best of the island with island-knowledgable Claudia Hanna. Claudia grew up in Harrisonburg, yet she spent eight years in Cyprus with her family. Trek through amphitheaters of the biblical Roman city of Salamis; pick olives from the organic olive groves and tour a working olive press; sail on a sunset cruise on the Mediterranean; learn to make your own yogurt, cheese, and village bread; amble through the stalls of a true farmer's market; enjoy fresh fish cooked in front of you; detox in a traditional Turkish bath. All of this is set in a 5-star, luxury hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with private van service to take us from destination to destination as we unlock the mysteries of healthy Mediterranean living and learn how to adopt these simple life tricks in the West. 

Cost: $2,100 - includes accomodations at a five star hotel, food, drinks, transportation and admissions to sites.

Not included: airfare to and from the United States.
