Birthplace of Aphrodite, Cyprus has seduced and inspired generations of travellers. From Mycenean Greeks and invading Persians to sunburnt Crusaders, Ottoman pashas and, latterly, British and Russian expats, each has left their mark. Yet as well as a complex, multilayered past, the word “Cyprus” also conjures up images of dazzling beaches, shimmering blue seas, endless summers and tables groaning under platters of meze and bottles of sweet chilled wine.
And it is to this touristic idyll that thousands return each year. British visitors in particular warm to not just the climate but the familiar traces of home: cars driving on the left, red pillar boxes and even the comforting sight of Marks & Spencer amid the palms and searing heat – a legacy of decades of colonial rule.
