Kourion

Reviewed By Peter B - East Ayrshire, United Kingdom

Not to be missed if at all interested in archaeology. A large site, still being explored. A guide book recommended an hour and a half to get around the site, but our experience was that if you wanted to see as much as possible, you could easily take twice as long.
The ground is pretty rough underfoot in places and not great for people with walking problems. Good footwear is essential, as is a hat of some sort in hot Sunshine.
There is good wheelchair access to parts of the site but not to everything.
Well worth the 5 Euro entrance fee.

We are here to guide you through this journey of 5500 years, show to you the very first steps of the European wine, and wake up your senses through a wine tasting procedure. We invite you to taste the Cyprus wine.

It's a collection of artefacts and a naff PowerPoint slide show. Our 'guide' was very hard to understand, gave a lightning tour of a few things, like 5 minutes, sat us down to watch the PowerPoint and told us to go downstairs for tasting. It then dawned that this is a commercial Enterprise to sell their own products. The tasting was just ok, tiny amounts. There was an interesting side room done out as an office with a lovely cloak hanging up - no explanation at all what it was ! I spotted it was a Knights Hospitaller Maltese Cross on it and asked if that was to do with Comandaria wine ? Apparently yes but either she didn't really know or couldn't explain it in English . On leaving guide became very friendly and hoped we enjoyed the visit - we didn't.

Church of Agios Efstathios

Reviewed By Roberts69 - Northampton, United Kingdom

The Church of Agios Efstathios was built in the 12th century, although important repairs and conversions were done to it during the middle of the 15th century.
Located just a few hundred meters up the road from the popular Kolossi Castle, it's believed that it was used by the knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem (Knights Hospitallers), the historic owners of the Castle.
The Church is tiny but it is very typical of Cypriot 'village' churches of this period and inside there are remains of some frescoes (15th Century) have been salvaged. It only needs about 15 minutes for a visit but this cultural and atmospheric Church is well worth a visit when in the area visiting the Castle.

St. Nicholas of the Cats

Reviewed By SPW21 - Surrey

We found this monastery by accident but decided to stop and have a look. It was a Sunday late morning and appeared deserted except for a couple of fellow tourists. The chapel looks very ordinary from the outside but inside had some interesting icons. The stone work on the inside looks much older almost as though the outside stonework is a skin over the original building. At first we could only see one cat, sleeping on a bench by the door to the chapel but then we went towards the monastery garden and suddenly saw one cat under a plant, then another and another. There were indeed lots of cats some friendly and some shy but all well fed and healthy looking. People obviously bring donations of cat food but we hadn't, sadly there wasn't a collection box to leave a donation.

Akrotiri Salt Lake

Reviewed By clanline - Tintagel,Cornwall

There were a few flamingoes but not the large flocks we saw some years ago on our previous visit but it was a different time of year which probably explains that!
We saw quite a few different birds including what we think was Marsh Harriers.
Some of the roads are rough and some of the time it is difficult to pick out the road itself!!!
