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.

This was part of a day tour and was well worth stopping for. We were there for about an hour, which was about right. Not the most spectacular set of ruins, but not bad.

Really enjoyed the amphitheater and the mosaics. Some are so well preserved that they look like they were made recently. You need to remember most are over 1500 years old.
