It's not often you can walk around a place that is thousands of years old and marvel at what was then. This site and settlement with its central temple is very accessible and you can certainly get the feel of what it might have been like. And a such as it's not far out of Limassol so it should be...

Amathous emerges from the very ancient times. People who are interested in exploring the first trace of human beings back in Neolithic period must visit Amathous - walk up to the top of the cliff and have a look at this ancient city and look then south at the sea to identify the walls of one of the most busy...

This place is at the edge of Limassol, just right after the hotel zone.You can take the bus, you wont miss it. If you are planning to walk around the ruins of the ancient city a make sure that you have a good pair of shoes and water esspecially during summer time. This is perfect for kids, let them walk...

Some rocks with no evidence to be ruins. Complete waste of time. Stick to the beach. In all cases, we don't visit Cyprus for cultural reasons.

Just some old rocks on a hill, aside from the coast. Better go to the beach instead of coming here, if you ask me..

Stopped off here on the way to the Kourion: though the Kourion is more than enough to fulfil an average tourists need for archeology. Not worth the entrance fee. If you have the time: then skip this and drive onto Kourion and spend your money and time there. Much more impressive views and ruins and mosaics. Was very happy to... More

This is a travel back in time. Make sure that you have a good pair of shoes and fluids. They really could make the buses stop outside the entrance but they clearly are not considering that people want to use the bus to get there. How silly is that? Beware that the staff in these places and the bus drivers... More

If you keen in history and like ruins - this is definitely a place for you! But if you wish to see not only a trace of history, but an interesting place worth separate visiting - do not waste you time. If you happen to be around, come and see these ruins. 10 or 15 minutes will be enought. You... More
