  • Although I came here at the end of my trip to Nicosia, this tower museum would be a good starting point. You get a decent view of the city, including the occupied side. There are panels pointing out buildings of significance and there is a movie clip that provides a brief overview of the city's history. Cost was 2,50 euros (April 2019).
