The packages include thematic tours, promoting key characteristics and sightseeing places of the countries involved, such as areas of natural beauty, cultural monuments, large events, which visitors can enjoy as part of a single tour package.

Joint packages include the following thematic tours:

  • Dive into Aphrodite’s sea

  • Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Gastronomy
  • Thrills on wheels
  • The hidden treasures of the Phoenicians’ route

The next step will be to brief tourist operators on the packages. These will also be offered for excursions in Cuprus to cruise passengers.
