According to Google, an hour and a half.

Yes, it is an easy drive if you like motorways.

It depends on the traffic. If you visit on a weekend, it will only take about an hour, otherwise expect around an hour and a half...

We have been to Nicosia Twice when staying in Prot.

Its a nice easy drive,watch out for the local police though.. (dont speed) as they will have you..

Also, there will be traffic in Nicosia, but it's not too bad compared to our traffic int he UK.

Nicosia is a lovely place to visit, get a map and have a good look round, plenty of places to park.. Make sure you go up to the top of Debenhams (there is a lift) to see the museum about the divided city. very interesting. Take passport if wanting to cross the border. Have fun :)
