No visitor should leave Cyprus without having visited Curium. A very well preserved ancient site (mosaics, ruins and theatre) which is very well situated. The view is panoramic over the cliffs and the beach. If you happen to attend a show at the theatre in the summer time it will remain unforgettable. Also, visit the beach with rare waves for the Mediterranean sea as well as nice restaurants and cafes.

The historic site of Kurium is extremely well maintained and well worth a visit. The mosaics, ruins and amphitheater are absolutely stunning and we spent a wonderful afternoon there wandering the different sites while looking out over the cliffs and sea. We found the site very peaceful and extremely impressive. Getting there from Limassol can be a little tricky if you don't have a car. We took the public bus, which was about a 2 hr journey in total, then an uphill walk along a road to the site, however it was definitely worth the trip. This was one of the highlights of our holiday.

The usual entry fee common at official sites throughout the south. This must be one of the best managed sites and a must to visit

This is a huge site and there are many ruins to explore so allow enough time, The amphitheatre was beautiful and with view looking out to sea. The baths, the Gladiators House, Achilles house and the mosaics were stunning, especially as some were well over 2000 years old. There is so much more that could uncovered here so we will visit again to watch it progress.

This is a must see for any devotees of ruins and old culture. Everything is well labelled and the staff helpful. You can spend hours here.
