The Cyprus Virtual Forum is an intercultural dialogue forum organized by the tourism organization Top Kinisis Travel within the framework of the TRAMES project. The project is co-funded by the European Union program “COSME”.
As part of the Cyprus Virtual Forum events, we explore the cultural heritage that links the Mediterranean countries together and we cook, being inspired by the lifestyle and eating habits of the ancient Phoenicians. The Phoenicians were notable traders and masters of the sea and in the 1st millennium BC, who became colonizers of the Mediterranean Sea establishing sites on the west coast of Sicily, Spain, Cyprus, Corsica and Sardinia.
