Kourion, Limassol

4.7
Wander into Ancient Roman and Byzantine ruins at Kourion for a look at the remains of houses, monuments, markets, baths, and an intact 3,500-seat theater. Although the site had been inhabited in Neolithic times from five millennia BCE, the town is believed to date back to the 13th century BCE. It supported an uprising against Persia in the 4th century BCE and was used by Alexander the Great. See mosaic floors from the 3rd and 4th centuries CE, private residences of the rich dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries CE, and a 5th century CE early Christian basilica at the site.

  • An archaeological site with magnificent sea views. A two-hour tour is required. The entrance is at €4.50. A must-have!

  • The site is very nice, probably the best kept in the area. There are mosaic floors, columns, a theatre and several very interesting areas. The visit made calmly could last a couple of hours and personally recommend the late afternoon, it's less hot and the sunset light is spectacular. The site is close to the sea, you arrive by car/bus and the entrance costs 4.50 euros.
