Troodos mountains should not be overlooked – there are lots of lovely top offs to explore on the ascent, the highlights for us are:
Omodos is a beautiful village located in a valley just before Kato Platres. It is rich in history, has beautiful back streets, craft shops, side alleys and stone-built monastery – one of our favourite villages which is well worth a visit. Pop into the house of Socrates if you get the chance, he’s a real character! Googlemap Link.
Mount Olympos is the highest point of the mountains – pop to the top for some beautiful views, walks and even skiing in the winter season! Googlemap Link.
