The Pope to stay in Cyprus after Roman around Europe
Friday 2, April 2010
This June, Pope Benedict XVI will be staying in Cyprus as part of his holy tour around Europe. The Pope will be arriving on June 4th before leaving from Larnaca Airport two days later after a whirlwind stay in the beautiful Cypriot country.
Roman Catholics from all over Cyprus, as well as those from neighbouring countries, are likely to descend on the Cypriot cities for his public mass at Agia Kyriaki Church. It is thought anywhere between 15,000 and 20,000 people will be in attendance.
The Pope arrives in Cyprus at the invitation of the Archbishop of Cyprus and the president and will also be taking in visits to Britain and Spain amongst other countries on his tour.
Jet2.com flies to Larnaca from Leeds Bradford and Paphos from Leeds Bradford and Newcastle plus new base East Midlands. The airlines friendly low fares to sun-drenched Cyprus start at just £59.99 (oneway, incl. taxes).
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
