Great place to soak up some history I personally walk my dogs there. It's safe and lovely whatever the season. During snake season (warm weather) I have seen some snakes. But the pathways are kept clear and clean so they are rare. Great place to pick fresh Goji berries too. Daily buses of tourists. Sometimes it's very quiet. But very... More

This was a visit worth waiting for, we saw the site on a lovely January day. Very quiet which added to the experience of wandering around the vast area soaking up the atmosphere, there is a small cafe and toilets. If travelling from Southern Cyprus you need your passport to cross the border.

Well worth a visit for a well preserved archaeological site which stretches over a large area. A free guide offers to accompany you although the tour they offer takes almost 2hrs. You are warned that the area is quite uneven for walking. There is a cafe and clean loos on site.
