Take the A9 which will change for B9 for Troodos Mountains and have a stop at Kakopetria village. Enter the village and request directions for the old part of the village to take a walk there and if you are hungry you came to the best place of the island for a trout fish. Afterwards set heading for Ag. Nikolaos road (very close to kakopetria), a nice windy mountainous road which leads to some beautiful villages and forest routes. Ending Ag. Nikolaos road turn left for Prodromos village, the highest located village of the island at 1500m. As you reach the village at a round about, turning right you will visit the abandon old stone build hotel of Berengaria (Berengaria was the wife of Richard the Lion heart) or you can enjoy a nice cooked meal (recommended) at the restaurant at the round about (next to the road for Berengaria). Then proceed to Platres via Trooditissa monastery, you must mention Trooditissa monastery otherwise perhaps advice you for another route. The route is lovely, the nature great, there is a picnic area along the route, if its spring the nature will be even greater, the road is very good for speeds of 50-60km/h, just take the route. From Platres take B8 to visit Lania village, a renovated beautiful traditional village which worth a visit. Then either proceed to Limassol town for a coffee by the beach front or continue through the mountainous road network for Nicosia.
Notes: restaurant/tavernas available caution during winter for icy roads. all year round route but especially spring time
