Teenager Alone in Nicosia

Dear Travelers,

I am a teenager thinking about traveling to Cyprus and Nicosia to be precise. Is it safe for me as a 17 years old teenager to travel alone ? Please note that I do not intend to drink alcohol or smoke cigaretts. I want to discover the ruins and such not to mention that I want to go to a resort for a day trip. Thank you in advance.

You may need to check the airline that you intend to fly with as some airlines have a minimum age for unaccompanied teenagers to fly. Personally I would recommend that you at least have one companion as we have a saying, "safety in numbers"

Dear Hamad

Nicosia is a safe place to be as long as you dont get lost in the suburbs or the narrow alleys at night.

Drinking at bars or clubs in not a big issue however avoid drinking during the day, smoking is not a problem however indoors is not permitted.

I would suggest you book a hotel near the city and use the bus or walk around the areas of your interest.

If you want to go to a resort i would suggest you visit limassol, larnaca and pafos.

Good luck

Cyprus is a pretty vey safe place as long as mentioned above you don't get lost late in the night, however even then is still not so dangerous. if you are interested in the history of the island you can visit Paphos, is about two hours from Nicosia but has many of the important archeological places.

Hi, if you are staying in Nicosia have a look at the at the Classic Hotel or the Holiday inn both they are near each other and in a good location within the walls , close to the checkpoint if you wish to have a look around the northern side occupied by the Turkish. And convenient for the inter-city bus station if you wish to visit Larnaca and Limassol/Paphos . But I think being alone and the first time in Cyprus try to find a guided tour your hotel should have some info. You may make some friends in your hotel to hang out with at night.Julie

Hi, again sorry About the 2nd post I was going to add this to the above but I got timed out. To be honest if you are flying into Larnaca ,I would stay there , you can easily get to Nicosia/ Limassol or Paphos from there all the buses stop on Larnaca prom. and if you stay around the areas near the prom it will not be so confusing to get back to your apartment in the evenings ,I would recommend the Frangeorgio /Petru Brothers /Livadhistios or the opera. take a look at booking.com Julie
