With the priest's house, bath house, and sacrificial altar this place as an architect's heaven. Although that the acropolis is new this is still a must see.

Some good archeology and worth a visit. Would start here and then move onto Kourion. Take some water in the summer as it is open and gets rather warm

Once a stopping off place for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land, this is a small patch of ancient ruins. Little information about the function of the buildings in their heyday.

my wife and I visited this site. Amazing atmosphere but some of the information signs had weathered so as to be unreadable. This was a shame as would have liked to know more.

We found this by accident and decided to visit. It wasn't expensive (2E50) and well worth the money. However there were a few tours going around which we found a bit intrusive. Its hard to tell what has been restored and what is original.
