Cyprus is far more than a lazy beach-time resort; the island is multilayered! Two different cultures, Greek and Turkish, are so close to each other. It's exciting how easy you can dip from one into the other - be sure to cross the line!

The story of Cyprus’ turbulent past is told through its historic sites, Roman ruins, versatile museums, and gloomy urban streets. You can find fascinating relics, including neolithic dwellings, Bronze Age and Phoenician tombs, and exquisite Roman mosaics.

While on the streets, keep your eyes peeled for Venetian walls, Byzantine castles and churches, Roman monasteries, and Islamic mosques. The landscape and overall mild climate mean that outside is where you should be. There are also beaches, pine-clad mountains, vineyards, and spaciously valleys around waiting to be explored.

Please note that you will not have time during the training to travel and discover the country. Please plan a trip before or after the training.
