Make sure you have enough time at your dispocal to taste what this route and its special wines have to offer.

Visit wonderfully unspoilt villages such as Omodos, Vasa, Koilani, Lofou and Vouni with their traditional architecture, cobblestoned narrow passages cheerfull sourroundings, many of which host some for the best tavernas in Cyprus.
