These Roman ruins are some of the best that we've seen. As with most sites in Cyprus they could do with some better signs, but well worth the visit. Don't just look at the ampitheatre and theatre, but spend the morning visiting the whole site:...More

sadly, our guide was not very personable and did not enthuse us with his delivery. Care needed when walking around - many trip hazards.

A great and not over-organized Roman site, with a half-intact amphitheatre, forum colonnades and two exquisite remnants of mosaic, by the sea. Wonderful!

It's about half an hour of pleasant walk along the beach. The problem is not that the way is not walkable, but you need to walk on sand pretty much so this may be a bit hard. You can also swim there if you preffer ;).
