  • Cheapest Option from Larnaca -Ayia Napa

    Ayia Napa Transportation

    You can get to Ayia Napa easily from Larnaca using the OSEA Buses however because the bus makes several stops the duration of the ride is approximately 120 minutes, which is ok if you are not in rush. It is the cheapest ride and an opportunity to pass through several small villages and see a bit of the Larnaca/Famagusta –non occupied district if...

  • Profitis Elias Church

    Protaras Things to Do

    Although modern this church was built in the Byzantine style to replace a small room that was being used as a church. It is well worth the walk to the church and the climb to the top (about 100 steep stone steps) as from the top there is a breathtaking view of Protaras and the surrounding countryside. In the evenings the church is lit up.

(Comet Taxi). He was telling me that for years he is the chauffeur of a hotel owner I happen to know only because he avoids going...

    Paralimni Favorites

    Historically, Paralimni was built on the shores of a shallow lake, which filled with water only in the wintertime. The word Paralimni means "by the lake".

  • Best View toward Famagusta

    Dherinia Things to Do

    The Dherynia Folk Museum is shut Sundays but probably offers a better view than the alternatives. If you turn up when the Museum is shut the cafe owner next door will lend you quite good quality binoculars and your allowed to climb up onto the roof balconey and get a pretty decent view.No strings attached but I did stop at the cafe after which...

Kythrea Salamis

  • Watch your step.

    Kythrea Salamis Warnings and Dangers

    As with all ancient sites in Cyprus (and especially so in the north) you need to think about what you wear on your feet and where you are walking.Don't expect nicely laid-out paths and EU health & safety regulations; they probably won't exist. There are rough stones, hidden holes, chunks of masonry hidden amongst the grasses.......it is not...

  • The new excavations

    Kythrea Salamis Things to Do

    Set just beyone the amphitheatre, these new excavations are ongoing during the warmer months.So far they have uncovered a fishmarket, and adjoining agora (market place) with some wonderful carved columns, and a goodly section of paved road.I hope they will continue to expose and conserve more of this wonderful site, for so very much remains...

  • A bit more evidence.......

    Kythrea Salamis Off The Beaten Path

    Salamis was not constructed in one go, then left.In the same way as modern towns, and modern buildings, changes and improvements were made over decades and centuries.You can see this most clearly if you look at some of the chunks of masonry lying around. The chunk in the photo clearly shows a whole sequence of flooring layer, from basic opus...

    Salamis/Konstantia City-Site Transportation

    Whether you're staying on the Greek side of the island or the Turkish northern part, you'll need wheels of some sort to get to Salamis.It lies on the northern side of the Green line. Thus if you want to get to it from the south in the car you will need to go through border procedures - very simple really, you just get a visa for yourself and...

    Salamis/Konstantia City-Site Warnings and Dangers

    Salamis is largely untouched by tourists and tourism. This means that there are no guards or musueum employees keeping an eye on things as you wander round. It also means that a lot of the antiquities are simply lying around where they have been left or have fallen. Tempting as it might seem to help yourself to a piece of treasure, don't. If...

  • Payment for tickets

    Salamis/Konstantia City-Site Favorites

    Salamis is on the Turkish side of the Green Line. We had a sudden moment of panic at the ticket office when we realised we had no Turkish money with us. Worry not - Cypriot pounds are quite acceptable - you will even be provided with change in Cypriot pounds if you wish.
