A fascinating look into ancient history. Some areas protected by shade, others are open and you can wander through the ruins imaging what life was like there many years ago. Good information boards and a free map makes it an easy place to get around and understand. The site is quite large so we had a very pleasant wander around for around an hour and a half.

We visited Kourion with our three children (6, 4, 1) in early April. Our kids loved it. Spent a couple of hours here. Cost E4.50 for adults and the kids were free. First thing to note is that the location is absolutely stunning overlooking the sea. It was a hot day and there was a lovely breeze blowing over the whole site. Took us about 2 hrs for a bit of a whirlwind walk between the different sites. The best bits for us were the mosaics. The gladiators house being particularly amazing. This really must be a definite stop for anyone visiting this part of the island.

Visited the site as part of Best of Cyprus Tour.
Saw the ancient baths and the Greco-Roman (restored ) theatre.
These parts of site are accessible to all. Time allocated to this visit was about 1 hour which is not long enough to visit all parts of this ancient site. Good information boards in English. Small museum with Ariel view of whole site.
Parking available but imagine this will be limited during height eight of season.
If you wish to visit the site I would recommend at least half a day

Gorgeous island and people. I've been driving every day here and that is a challenge ! We visited Larnaka, Lemessos and Olympus Mountain and everything was gorgeous.

Cyprus is our 38th visited country and the setting of Kourion is simply breathtaking. The ancient ruins are in a small area which you can cover in almost two hours.

Try to go there before afternoon when the sun will be in your favour for photo opportunities. The entry fee is only €4.50 per adult, the children and car park is free. It's an absolute must of you are in Cyprus or Limassol area.
