Transport in Cyprus
To date, public transportCyprus is at a fairly developed level, and thanks to regular bus routes allows travelers easy access to places of interest to them.
In the country you can fly with the following buses:
- Intercity buses: they make several flights a day (flight frequency - every 1.5-2 hours), bringing tourists to major cities, which are the main attractions of Cyprus (fares should be implemented in the bus). Moving on intercity buses, it is worth considering that the last flight can be carried out quite early - at 18:00 and on Sundays and trips can not be carried out. As for the route, at the intercity buses can be reached, for example, from Ayia Napa to Larnaca.
- City buses: These buses are delivered to all interested districts and suburbs of major cities of Cyprus as Paphos, Nicosia, Limassol (they hit the road on a daily basis, except on Sundays).
- Rural buses: they connect small villages to nearby cities. It's worth noting that rural buses do not run on Sundays and implement travel 1-2 times a day, so if you decide to get to some remote monastery, it can become quite problematic.
In Cyprus, a taxi is quite popular: travel can be at long distance (they leave every half an hour, can accommodate up to 7 people, and the place it is advisable to book in advance by calling the local office of a taxi), the city (can be ordered by phone or catch on the street) and village (boarding and disembarking is carried out in villages special parking) taxi.
