Within the framework of wider efforts to get foreign visitors better acquainted with the old city within the walls, the Lefkosia (Nicosia) Municipality from 1987 established a series of thematic walking tours.
These tours have been reorganised to present various new aspects of the old city as well as the city outside the walls. A city like Lefkosia (Nicosia) with its 5000 yearlong history has much to offer. By walking, one gets a better feel for a place and its yearlong atmosphere, then and now, and a better understanding of its continual cultural development. This is the philosophy upon which these walking tours of Lefkosia (Nicosia) are based.
