With summer in full swing, escape the heat for a couple of hours and visit a museum, an epicentre of cultural and historical identity. Pop into the Byzantine Museum to witness a fascinating collection of meticulously preserved antiquities including 7th to 18th century icons. See the oldest
icon found yet in Cyprus, dating 1200 A.D. – the Virgin Eleousa, an exquisite example of Byzantine art. Or visit the all-year-round Archaeological Museum which houses an intriguing collection of Cypriot artifacts dating from the Neolithic Age to 1700 AD. A tombstone from Marion with the Cyprosyllabic script, the Hellenistic and Roman statue of Asklepios and the marble bust of Aphrodite are all worth seeing.
