Souvenir shops and markets can be found all over Cyprus, but for shopping at fashion boutiques, department stores and for international brands, you’ll want to head inland to the capital of Nicosia. Here you’ll find some of the best shopping in Cyprus on the two main shopping streets of Makarios Avenue and Stassicratous Street.
However, if you’re looking to take home some local handicrafts, the town of Lefkara is world-famous for its handmade lace and also produces some fine silver jewelry. You should also make a stop at The Cyprus Handicraft Service, sponsored by the Ministry of Commerce to preserve traditional arts and crafts. Based in Nicosia, Larnaka, Limassol and Paphos, it offers quality handicrafts such as woven baskets, metalwork, ceramics, lacework and embroidery.
