Very nice site with an interesting history you should read! We were there all alone. The view to the sea is very nice. After Vouni go see the nearby ancient village of Soli, the ancient rival!

This place is easy to find and is around four miles from the Soli archaeological site. The road up to the site is a little precarious (uphill, narrow and bendy), particularly if you meet a vehicle coming the other way. The entrance fee was 7TL/3...More

This was the most magnificent site we visited in Northern Cyprus. The atmosphere is heady, the views are breathtaking and you need at least an hour to drink it all in. Do take water and a picnic- it is a sublime spot to sit and...More
