Hey dopers, you’ve been pretty helpful before with travel advice so I turn to you once more.
For various reasons I going to find myself on Cyprus for three nights in mid-November. I’m flying into Larnaca (unless Air Cyprus change my flights again) and out of Paphos. My flight in is so late that I’ll have to stay in Larnaca but flights out are late enough that I could travel to Paphos in the morning and still make them.
I don’t know where to go, looking at the web there’s four cities in Southern Cyprus, Limassol is on the way to Paphos but Nicosia looks much more interesting. I’m not going to drive but I’m perfectly happy to sit on a bus for a few hours (or more).
What I want to know is, what is there to do in each of the cities?
I’m not a sit on the beach person so I’d rather somewhere with some museums, or ruins, or churches nearby and also places with a decent enough night life so that I don’t get bored (I’m a bit of a night owl). I’d prefer to avoid the really touristy places but I wouldn’t mind staying in one if it was close to some interesting stuff.
Pointing me to any decent poker games would probably help me kill a couple of hours too.
Any information would be greatly appreciated as there doesn’t seem to be much that I can find on the web.
