The castle is small but well preserved. The museum is rather dated but has some interesting photographs. The old execution chmber (hanging) is a sombre experience. Nice views from the battlements.

The Archeological Museum is well worth to visit,more than once, if you have the oppurtunity. Be aware of the things you can see out -doors, in the backyard. You visit , you do some reading ( the tourist-information can hjelp you), you go back again, something will be somewhat clearer to you.A prctical advice; it can be rather "chilly "... More

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

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
