Not a must visit as such but inside is kept orderly and clean. The actual museum has a bit of history and a display of many historical photos which I appreciated.

Kids can go for free. Small and cozy. It can be a house. The view is great. The photos of the past are in good order. It took 5 minutes to visit with the kid

It certainly worth to pay a visit especially if you have a camera along. It is located right on the beachfront and it is so picturesque. (Don't expect much inside though)! From the top terrace above the lovely gardens however, visitors can have some lovely views of Finikoudes and Makenzi. The fee is not much at all, just over a... More

The fort has a room with pottery and weapons. You can climb the steps to the top of the fort and look out over the sea or up at the Mosque and its pretty minaret behind the fort. There is a chilling room where the British carried out executions when it was a British police station.

Entry was 2.5 Euros and we got what we paid for. It's worth a visit to walk along the walls, but it's very small with not a lot inside

Larnaca fort is not worth a visit, its empty save for a few rooms with photos and and a few poor relics, and if you linger too long looking at them you get shouted at by a very rude janitor my next holiday will be Turkey

This is one of the original forts used to guard Larnaca hundreds of years ago. It is now a fairly average tourist attraction. It is worth a visit mainly because you do not have to travel miles to see it. The fort is right on the beach front in Larnaca. It is a part of local history and the old... More

Interesting visit but not on the must see list. Advantage is that it is on the sea front and one does not need to go out of your way to visit.
