We visited Kourion with our three children (6, 4, 1) in early April. Our kids loved it. Spent a couple of hours here. Cost E4.50 for adults and the kids were free. First thing to note is that the location is absolutely stunning overlooking the sea. It was a hot day and there was a lovely breeze blowing over the whole site. Took us about 2 hrs for a bit of a whirlwind walk between the different sites. The best bits for us were the mosaics. The gladiators house being particularly amazing. This really must be a definite stop for anyone visiting this part of the island.

Visited the site as part of Best of Cyprus Tour.
Saw the ancient baths and the Greco-Roman (restored ) theatre.
These parts of site are accessible to all. Time allocated to this visit was about 1 hour which is not long enough to visit all parts of this ancient site. Good information boards in English. Small museum with Ariel view of whole site.
Parking available but imagine this will be limited during height eight of season.
If you wish to visit the site I would recommend at least half a day

Gorgeous island and people. I've been driving every day here and that is a challenge ! We visited Larnaka, Lemessos and Olympus Mountain and everything was gorgeous.

Cyprus is our 38th visited country and the setting of Kourion is simply breathtaking. The ancient ruins are in a small area which you can cover in almost two hours.

Try to go there before afternoon when the sun will be in your favour for photo opportunities. The entry fee is only €4.50 per adult, the children and car park is free. It's an absolute must of you are in Cyprus or Limassol area.

Visited the remains of the ancient city of Kourion in the course of a week long golfing holiday in Cyprus. It was a wonderful experience and a real credit both to the original builders and to the archaeologists who helped with the reconstruction. In particular, the Theatre and the House of Eustolius were mind blowing, considering how long ago they were originally constructed. It is easy to be transported back in your imagination to what it must have been like to live here between the 2nd and 5th centuries A.D. In order to get the full flavour, one would require half a day here to experience everything the site has to offer. Unfortunately, our bus didn't allow this luxury but we will be back again sometime in the future.
