Vad du kommer att göra

This is not a regular city walk, but a passage through a town frozen in time. It will give you an insight into the current situation of the Buffer Zone “Green Line” off the beaten track, on streets that are hard to discover without the experience of a local guide. You will see the Venetian walls and how they form a boarder around the Old City, so unusual that once seen on a map will never be forgotten as a design synonymous with the unique shape of this ancient fortification.
On our walk we will explore the Southern side of the city and follow the infamous “Green line” that cuts through the centre, separating the city into southern and northern sections. This division has kept the two major communities, of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots apart for more than four decades. Our journey begins at the Ledra Palace Hotel known in its era as the largest and most majestic hotels of the capital.
You will witness life having evolved along either side of this schism, something once impossible to do until recent agreements between the two sides to open border crossings. We will explore Ledra Street located at heart of the aforementioned walled city now once again rekindled to one of the most popular pedestrian commercial streets accented by abandoned buildings reclaimed by nature through decades of lost time scarred by bullet holes, military outposts and barricades.
Other things to note
Kindly note that our walk could last between 3.5-4 hours with our break, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes!

Group Tours are also offered with a slightly varied itinerary, tailored to your needs. Please ask for details and all arrangements can be made.

Life unfolds one step at a time, but at any given moment, we can change direction and walk a different path.

Hello, my name is Eleni and I am a walking group leader & guide and an Outdoor Life Coach.

I love nothing more than sharing the sights, sounds, and secrets of streets rarely discovered. I've been leading recreational walks for many years and I’ve always noticed how different I feel when I spend time outdoors: grounded, creative, and renewed.

I enjoy connecting and showing people around this great city and I feel the best way to connect is on foot!

The intention is to leave you with an insider’s perspective of Nicosia, the last divided Capital City in Europe.

Var ni kommer att vara

During the morning walk, we shall take a short break at a traditional Cypriot pastry and coffee shop serving locals for over 76 years, where you will delight in the melt-in-your-mouth pastries, of which their cheese and Cypriot traditional Croissant' are to die for!
If you choose to include the afternoon/evening walk we will visit a Kafeneio-bar situated right on the Buffer Zone and enjoy some local beer.

We really enjoyed the tour with Eleni. Eleni herself has an interesting story, which is very connected with Cyprus. She knows very well in Nicosia and Cyprus, is very nice and even gave us tips for the next days. We have learned a lot on the tour and seen very much. Also off the beaten path. We would do the tour again at any time. Also you don't need to worry about the walking distance, it was very easy to walk.

It was a wonderful time and unique experience to see divided city. Eleni is really warm and lovely person. She showed us the city and told us very hard story of divided island as a person who has a first-hand experience. Thanks to that we are able to better understand story of the Cyprus. I highly recommend this tour ❤️

Il tour con Eleni è stato davvero un bellissimo momento della nostra vacanza a Cipro. Abbiamo capito molte cose dell’isola e della città di Nicosia che avremmo perso passeggiando con lei lungo le linea verde. Un tour consigliassimo, Eleni è davvero gentile e molto amichevole è la guida che dovrebbe essere in ogni posto!

Walking with Eleni was a perfect start of our Cyprus trip. We not only heard amazing stories and saw breathtaking places but also got a lot of tips for the next part of our trip. It's worth every cent. We really loved the time together.
