This item is not currently available to order.


Hike up to Buffavento, stroll through the cloisters of Bellapais Abbey or go barefoot on the golden sands of the Karpas Penninsula. Rugged North Cyprus offers charming unspoilt villages, deserted beaches and hidden monasteries--things of the past in the developed south. Revised and expanded, the eighth edition of North Cyprus reveals churches, castles, classical ruins and newly accessible sites. Accompanying this is an entertaining and in-depth overview of the ancient and modern history that has shaped this complex and divided island.

About the Author

Diana Darke first became interested in the Near East when she read Arabic at Oxford. For the last 29 years she has lived, worked and travelled extensively in Turkey and the Arab world, initially with the Foreign Office, then as an Arabic consultant. Work and pleasure have taken her to both sides of Cyprus on many occasions. Diana has written and recently updated Bradt's Eastern Turkey as well as Syria: the Bradt Travel Guide and co-authored Bradt's Oman. She purchased an old merchant's house in Damascus, devoting much time to its restoration, prior to Syria's recent troubles. This is documented in her recently published book, My House in Damascus. This edition has been updated by Murray Stewart. In 2009, Murray gave up a senior role with a large accountancy firm to pursue his passion for travel-writing. He has worked as an English teacher in Mexico and Chile, as a corporate restructurer in Bulgaria and as a consultant in Spain. He speaks four languages, and has twice walked the Camino Santiago, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. He has visited 56 countries and his on-line travel guides have won two prizes. Murray spent some time living in North Cyprus in 2010/2011, updating Edition 7 of North Cyprus: The Bradt Travel Guide and has returned there for this 8th edition.
