We waited till Dec to visit so we were not in the heat. Visiting in high season would have been hard work. Ensure you wear suitable shoes and take water. Suitable for prams, although my 15 month old walked a lot or was carried. Excellent...More

Very interesting archaeological site on a hill top with a large number of different excavations and reconstructions. You pay on the drive up the hill, park at the top, then are free to spend as long as you like on site. The range of 'ruins'...More

The situation of kourion high above the sea gives the site a splendid aura. It is quite large so it's wise to pace yourself and to take supplies as refreshments are inadequate. A picnic in the Roman amphitheatre is an attractive proposition. The nearby museum...More

The ancient site is nicely conserved and sits atop a cliff with a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape. Although the foundations are much older, what you can visit is mostly Roman remains (as in so many other arqueological sites). But it is definitely worth...More

We stopped off here on our way to Limassol for a little break and to mainly take some photos of the coastline. The different areas were clearly signposted and it was easy to navigate. There is a free map to take with you that you...More

There was a small riding school near the beach but I don't know if it is still open, if it is I am sure you would have to book..

5 Days in Cyprus (1 Replies)
I am planning to travel to Cyprus in mid/late October for 5 days and intend to rent a car to maximize flexibility for exploring the island. From all the reading that I have been doing, it seems like there is too much to see and not enough time, which is making it hard to settle on an itinerary! I would like to visit some archaeological sites (Salamis, Kourion), castles (St. Hilarion, Buffavento, maybe Kantara), monasteries/traditional Cypriot villages (any suggestions?), spend time...More

Visit to Nicosia and to Kolossi/Kourion (4 Replies)
We are visiting Limassol at the end of this month and staying at the Kapetanios hotel. Although I've driven in Cyprus before I'm a bit reluctant to hire a car this time and would like advice on how easy it is to visit Nicosia for a day trip by public transport. Also the sites at Kourion and Kolossi.

Port of Larnaca - Advice on Options from Tour Guides (10 Replies)
Have looked through the forum and don't see what I am looking for - or at least something current. We will be in the port of Larnaca in October 2016. Arrive 8am and have to be on board at 3:30pm. Our group of 6 is debating options. Some want to go to Nicosia and walk over to the Turkish side of the city as well. One tour company is willing to do this. I'm wondering if this is realistic with our short stay in Larnaca? How difficult is the border crossing? Delays? The other tour...More

This seems a very unrealistic try. 8am hopefully will be in port but till you disembark.... The shorter drive is to Nicosia but early morning traffic will take you more time to reach Ledra crossing than to get to Nicosia. The Paphos thing is 2hours to get there and 2 back. All possible but will be in a hurry to be within time limits. Why not just spend some nice relaxing time in Larnaca . Town beachfront is filled with cafes and restaurants and Ayios Lazaros , medieval castle a short walk
