  • How to travel around Cyprus

    The only way to get around Cyprus is by car, bike or bus. The only railway which ran trains between Nicosia and Famagusta closed in 1951. Cycling is difficult as some of the regions are hilly, and unless the visit has a car, the island's bus service is sufficient for many visitors. There are two types of bus services. The regional (blue) buses...
