Another must see and a UNESCO World Heritage site, so unexpected amongst all the Roman and Greek ruins. A very interesting insight into living in Neolithic times and very easy to get to with public transport. There was no one else there when I visited and I found that this added a certain melancholy to the whole atmosphere.

Our daughter who is 5 absolutely enjoyed this! It's not a very long walk around and there's so much that you can talk about with them. It's a little adventure! Great experience for us as well. Highly recommend.

This location is a UNESCO listed site. It is beautiful and not over run with buses full of tourists. I accept perhaps not to every one cup of tea, still very interesting and formative nonetheless. Recommended if it is your cup of tea.

We first became aware of this Neolithic site from passing its smaller sister site 'Tenta' further down the motorway which can be seen from the road by the large canopy over the ruins. Choirokoitia is a larger and more informative site, it is well laid out and offers shady areas and seating under trees to avoid the mid-day sun (unlike... More

What you see are the foundations of 50 dwellings spread over a hillside. Be prepared for lots of steps and full sun exposure. While it doesn't seem like there is much to see what you do see is 9,000 years old!!! Amazing!!!

Wonderful sight with excellent reconstruction of the village. A little short on explanation throughout the walk but interesting archeological site and very worth a visit

A fascinating neolithic settlement, wonderfully presented. Only Euros 2.50 entrance fee. Situated very close to the A1 - easy to get to. Toilets available - large car park - cafe at the entrance to the car park. I was the only visitor at the time (May 2016), which is sad. As I was the only person there, I climbed over... More

Again a fatastic remain of the past. A village with the remains of 247 people and a perfect example of human presence on the island long before christ. It shows how genious our ancestors were in constructing houses. This open air museum that is very well maintained costs only € 2,50 per person and gives you a good impression of... More

These ruins are interesting given their great age. They have reconstructed houses to give you an idea of what they would look like, you then climb higher up the hill to view the ruins. They have two paths, one to the left, and the archaeological trail to the right. We took the left trail and returned via the archaeological trail.... More
