Enjoyed a very pleasant walk to these ruins from our hotel, Sensimar Bay by Atlantica. There is a very small entrance fee but worth it as it is a very interesting site.

We really enjoyed this short stop here to have a look round, although I think the heat did get a little bit to much but was worth the visit. You really do need to make sure you have lots of water and make sure you take a hat. The views are amazing as you look toward the sea.

Going from Nicosia to Limassol you better stop at the Kalavasos Tent, visit the Lefkara village and then go ahead to Limassol for Amathus and other sites. Used to be an ancient port, the area is good for swimming too and has some nice restaurants

As ruins go, these may be small and forgettable. However, we didn't expect much and we just went for our visit for a couple hours, walking a few hundred metres from our hotel. There is a small admission, 2,5 euros for the site itself, here you will find some pillars, building foundations and a square. Drainage is my thing, so... More

Got a few hours to spare, then give this site your attention. Well worth a visit. You will need a car though unless your a strong walker.

This is not one of the major sites in Cyprus like Paphos or Salamis, but with further exploration it is a real gem. It's very easy to get to, being five minutes from the A1. There is a small car park before the gates to get in. It is 2.50 Euros per person to walk around the main ruins but... More

We went here by bus as we were staying in Limassol. These ruins aren't as interesting as others in Cyprus but just cost 2.5 E to visit. However when we had finished we crossed the road and discovered that if you stepped over a small barrier, you were on a lovely wooden promenade which leads to another beach resort about... More

Visited as part of a day tour so had limited time to explore this extensive and sensitively excavated Roman complex. With the theatre overlooking the bay and the complex of buildings you could spend almost a whole day if you wished to explore everywhere.
