Cyprus - Europe's Hot Ticket

Europe's hot ticket: The summer is far from over in Cyprus. Covid cases are low and it's quarantine-free, so there's no better place for a late break Coronavirus has largely spared Cyprus, which is the third-largest island in the Mediterranean The country is sunny 300 days a year, with temperatures hovering around 25c well into November Britons must provide a 'fit-to-fly' certificate prior to entry and proof of a negative Covid-19 test result.

Suddenly, it seems like Cyprus is the only country still standing.

Coronavirus doesn't discriminate but, even so, it has largely spared the third largest island in the Mediterranean (after Sicily and Sardinia), with infections low after the Cypriot government restricted travel in and out during April and May.

'We want to ensure visitors enjoy a safe, carefree and much-needed holiday after months of stressful isolation,' Cyprus's Deputy Minister of Tourism Savvas Perdios told the Mail.

Cyprus is a fascinating melting pot of cultures, cuisines and religions. 

Cyprus is sunny 300 days a year, with temperatures about 25c well into November. Britons travelling there must provide a Covid-19 'fit-to-fly' certificate prior to entry (and proof of a negative test result).

While that might sound like a palaver,  when travelling to Cyprus, it is reassuring to know that all fellow passengers had tested negative within the past 72 hours.
