One of the most important and impressive archaeological sites in Cyprus
This magnificent Greco-Roman amphitheatre is fully restored and one of the most famous landmarks of Cyprus. Dating back to the second century BC and extended in the 2nd century AD, it can seat up to 3,500 spectators. Romantically situated across a coastal cliff with tumbling views of the countryside and Mediterranean below, Kourion is a magical place. Also, see House of Eustolios, which holds a clutch of fine, well-preserved mosaics. For those with more time up their sleeves, the large Byzantine basilica area is wonderfully picturesque with its tumbled columns and scraps of mosaic floor. Musical and theatrical events are regularly held here.
