It houses one of the oldest trade ships in the world, which was discovered in the 1960s after laying on the seabed for more than 2,000 years. The afternoon has been left free, so you might choose to make the most of your hotel's facilities, which include two swimming pools. This evening, join your fellow travellers for a welcome drink before dinner.

We'll continue to the medieval walled town of Famagusta.

After this we will head on to Dipkarpaz which is a small stop for buying water or carrots for the famous donkeys on the Karpaz peninsula. These wild donkeys have been living on the peninsula for years. They are very tame and friendly, and are also a protected species by law. We will then drive all the way to the end of the peninsula to see the St Apostolos Andres Monastery. There are plenty of wild donkeys here too.
