The ancient town of Askas in Cyprus has been a holiday destination for centuries. It is here that many legends, myths were created. There was the time when the daughter of the Greek god of wine and honey came to Cyrene and claimed the throne, but this fabled princess was none other than Aphrodite, the goddess of wine and festivities. She had great power and influence over the people of Cyprus so much so that she was said to be the keeper of lovers.
Many stories and myths surround the city today, many of which are now part of the Cyprus tourist attractions and history. Askameres is the name given to the area. The best way to get a true grasp of the city is to take part in one of the many guided tours available. A visit to the archaeological site of Knossos is one of the must do activities during a trip to Askas. Here you can see the remnants of an ancient city that has been destroyed by the Turkish military.
The most important settlement on the island of Cyprus is the city of Famagusta. This old city, which was founded by the Assyrians around 900BC, served as the seat of the High Priest, believed to be the father of Alexander the Great. One of the major attractions in the town of Famagusta is the Hadji Museum or House. Here you can find ancient artifacts, paintings and sculpture, sculptures depicting battles between Christians and Sinners, as well as other items of historical interest.
Another popular attraction is the Island of Larnaca, a volcanic island south of the resort of Limassol. Here you can go scuba diving, snorkeling, go fishing or play a game of tennis. You will also find many nature parks on the island, where you can relax and enjoy the greenery. Another popular activity is rafting, which can be a fun adventure and a wonderful way to spend your trip to Askas.
There are two churches on the island – St. Nicholas and St. Thomas Aquinas. These churches are a couple of miles from the resort and provide an excellent place for you to visit on your trip to Askas. If you decide to take a bus tour, you will see some of the historical sites in town, including the Temple of Artemis Agrotera, Paphos, the Temple of Dedication, and the Arch of Triumph. In fact, it is impossible to visit all of the important sites on the island of Cyprus in one single holiday. However, taking several days to explore the island will certainly be a worthwhile idea.
Finally, one of the best things to do while you are on your trip to Askas is to hit the beach and have a sandal under the sun. The sandal will help you tan your skin, which will provide your skin with natural protection from the UV rays of the sun. This in turn will prevent you from getting skin cancer. If you are going to enjoy the beach-life on the island of Cyprus, then you will need to ensure that you get enough tanning sessions during your trip. You will not find it difficult to find tanning salons on the island of Cyprus, so all you will need to do is ask around.
