    • Public transport for Lefkara

      Cyprus Mar 11, 2015 at 8:26 AM

      Read that there is a public bus service between Larnaca and Lefkara, but the book doesn't provide details and I can't find anything on the internet. Does anyone know the departure day and time, please. Also, is there any public bus between Nicosia and Lefkara, Lefkara and Paphos?   Grateful if you can help.


    • Hotel and bus location.

      Limassol Mar 21, 2015 at 10:37 AM

      I need to take an early bus from Limassol to Kalavasos. The route planner I've found on a website says, "Depart from Limassol Port (Limassol) Bus Stop and get on bus route Intercity Nicosia - Limassol towards Dionisiou Solomou Square (Nicosia)...." But it doesn't give an address of this bus stop. I need to find a hotel near to this bus stop? Does anyone know if Le Village Hotel or Harmony Bay Hotel is close to this bus stop. If not, any recommendation. Thanks.

    • Day trip to Famagusta from Agia Napa or Kyrenia

      Famagusta Mar 22, 2015 at 2:09 AM

      Does anyone know any tour operator for a day trip to Famagusta either from Ayia Napa or Kyrenia? I don't have a car, is there a bus that will take you there, how far away are the main sights/attractions from the bus stop after getting off? Do I need to catch another bus?

    • Itinery N+S Cyprus 2,5 weeks with kids

      Cyprus Mar 3, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      Hi guys!

      Could I please check with you if my planned itinery makes sense?

      We are travelling with 2 kids (1x toddler of 2 and 1x baby of *just* 1). Goal for the trip is to recover a bit after a few hectic years with the kids (broken nights and so), so we would like to have some time to relax (sun, beach). However, we wish to see some of Cyprus as well. We wish to start slow, so we booked a holiday village (resort) in Paphos for the first week (something we never did before, we are used to hostels...). Due to the kids, we wish not to change accommodation too often (preferably max. 4 times or so). We have a rental-car for the whole trip.

      My questions:
      Does the itinery below seem logical?
      Does it make sense to rent another car in the North for what we plan to do?
      Is Kyrenia a good place to stay to explore the North?
      Are we too long in the Paphos / Polis area? Should we stay longer in the East instead?

      Day 1: Arrive Paphos, check into resort. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 2: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 3: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 4: Chill (at resort + beach). Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 5: Day-trip Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 6: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 7: Day-trip Paphos area / coast above Paphos. Night: resort Paphos.
      Day 8: Check out, drive to Polis area. Night: Polis.
      Day 9: Polis (beach / drive along coast West and East of Polis). Night: Polis.
      Day 10: Check out, drive to Nicosia. Park car, rent another one in the North, arrive at Kyrenia. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 11: Explore villages in the area. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 12: Chill (at hotel and beach). Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 13: Daytrip to Famagusta. Night: Kyrenia.
      Day 14: Drive back to Nicosia, change rental car, continue to Kalavasos. Found an amazing B&B there.
      Day 15: Chill (at B&B). Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 16:Governor's Beach. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 17: Day-trip to Lanarca. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 18: Day-trip to Troodos Nat. Park. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 19: Spare day. Night: Kalavasos.
      Day 20: Depart in the morning (from Paphos).

      Thanks guys!!


    • Taking a rental car from South to North - contract disallows it

      Cyprus Mar 2, 2015 at 8:43 AM


      I am planning a 2,5 week trip to Cyprus in April, and noticed that almost no car rental company will allow to take the car into the North, not even the larger Avis/Hertz/Europcar ones. I only found one (after I checked around 20!!), and that one was really expensive and seemed dodgy.

      As I have to buy insurance at the border anyways, what would happen if I were to take the car into the North?

      Reason for me not to higher a "second car" for the North period (however silly this sounds), is that I am planning to enter in the far West (coming from Polis), and planning to go back to the South in Nicosia.

      Thanks for the advise whether I could risk being a little naughty or should REALLY stick to the contract.

      What things are there to do in Nicosia other than seeing historic buildings? We will be going in October for a wedding and staying for 4 days. We will have our (then) 3 month old son with us so he might get a bit irritable going round buildings all day...also i only enjoy a certain amount of historic culture at a go! :-)

      Thanks for any suggestions.

      Hi all,

      Sorry to be a pain but i really need some advise. My husband has booked a trip to Northern Cyprus for 02/12/11-05/12/11 (for my birthday). I have been searcing the internet as i would ideally like to see South Cyprus too. Can anyone advise me as to what the best way of travel is? If we hire a car can we drive through the border into South or are there restrictions? What is the public transport like? We are leaving on Friday and i think this trip might just be crazy because my husband hasnt looked into anything!! (typical) thank you so much everyone.

    • Transportation Inquiry

      by josephdaniel Online Now Jan 14, 2010 at 3:45 PM


      I am going to arrive in Cyprus next week. It's my first time to Cyprus and I don't know a single word of Greek. I am staying in Nicosia so I have the following questions:

      1. What's the best way to reach Nicosia from Larnaca airport that is not very expensive? Where can I get shared taxis? Do they operate at 19:00? because that's the time I will be arriving.

      2. Are transportation prices fixed or haggling is required?

      3. Is it easy/safe for an English-only speaker to find his way alone in Nicosia and Cyprus in general?

      4. Where can I get a local cell phone line and what's the average cost of internet access?

      Thanks in advance,

      Hi there,

      I am travelling to Cyprus to work for a few days soon. I will be working at the following address - Telecommunications Str., Strovolos.However, I cannot find it anywhere on a map (not even google maps!). Am I correct in saying that Strovolos is a suburb of Nicosia? I am looking for a nice hotel near the city centre where it won't take me to long to get to work in the mornings by taxi but its hard to choose a hotel when I don't know where Telecommunications Street is!

      Any help would be much appreciated.

      Flying from Nicosia to Turkey

      by MrBill Online Now Feb 24, 2005 at 4:09 AM

      Hello all,

      I have heard from my colleagues that it is not possible for me to cross the green line in Nicosia from Cyprus to the Republic of Northern Cyprus and take a flight from Nicosia to Istanbul or Ankara. They tell me that I may be arrested or get into trouble on my return as this is considered illegal. That is to improperly leave and then re-enter Cyprus without going through customs so to speak?

      Does anyone know the true story here? Flights from Nicosia are much cheaper and direct. If not, I would have to fly from Larnaca to Turkey via the ME or somewhere and that would add both time and expense. Thanks.

      Very much appreciated.
