These ruins are rather understated. There is some information near the entrance about the history and mythology of the place, after which you are free to wander anywhere on the site. One of the most notable features is the amount of (presumably ancient) broken pottery and even glass lying on the paths. It is also possible to get an idea... More

The ruins of an ancient royal city, originally constructed on the cliffs, connected with a cult of Aphrodite. As you will approach this place you will notice they chose a perfect location, partly on the top of a hill. When you climb to the top, all the way watching the remains, you will get a stunning panoramic view of the... More

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.

Amongst the many ancient sites on Cyprus, we enjoyed Amathus. It's pretty haphazard and there are few information boards but you easily get a good sense of this ancient city and its outstanding setting.

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
