Only a couple of euros to get in and can be done on way back to airport (larnaca). Also looks great when lit up at night so worth passing after dark but you can't go in after dark.

The most interesting way of finding how the locals used to live thousands of years ago. They even had baths and toilets the men must have been knowligable to make things work. Go and see for yourself as trying to explain could go on forever.

This is an interesting site to to see incorporated with Kourion and Colossi Castle on the way to Limassol, if you get the day pass for around 8.50euro works out to be good value if you have time includ the Limassol castle into your visit. This is a small site however worth a look, at the ruins of the Temple... More

There are some absolutely stunning views, but some of the things lying there seem to be made just a couple of weeks ago. Could be great to get the ancient city rebuilt

We spent about an hour looking around the ruins. It's obviously still being excavated as there was an excavation team on site. Reckon if we went back in another 20 years, there will be a marked difference. It still amazes me that they keep finding such historical remnants but if anyone who visits expects a wow factor, it isn't quite... More

My husband used to do an evening run to these ruins when last in Limassol but only did one run in the evening as so hot 35 to 40 degrees. He was amazed to see they were still working on the ruins.
