Makarios Avenue is the main shopping street in Nicosia, There are many cafes where people seat around a frape or other drink and watch other people go by and a lot of posing. I personally don't like going there and try to avoid it. If I really have to go I entertain myself by trying to sopt the biggest fashion victim...
The old town of Nicosia actually has a tourist part where you can find all the usual tourist souvenirs shops. Most of them will bargain a bit if you are subtle. Otherwise it does not make sense to buy clothes etc as everything is a lot more expensive. The locals will actually go shopping when in mainland Europe or catch a flight to Syria.
City Plaza is a reasonably large shopping mall on Makarios Avenue in the South side of Nicosia.
It has clothing, photographic, confectionary, gift and numerous other shops inside, and it is pleasantly air conditioned, so it can be nice to pop inside to cool down as you are walking down Makarios Avenue.
Anyone familiar with City Plaza and Makarios Avenue will realise it is quite an achievement to get a photo with no cars in the picture! This road is the most likely part to hit traffic jams in the whole of Cyprus!
There are a couple of Kiosks (Peripteron in Greek) in Eleftheria Square. They sell pretty up to date newspapers and magazines from around the world allowing you to catch up with what is going on back home.
They also sell sweets and drinks and postcards etc. Nothing special, but a good place to buy something as you stroll through Nicosia. They are open crazy hours, and are very busy with the locals too!
Just what have I been caught reading...?
What to buy: Newspapers from back home.
