The bus is the cheapest and most popular transport in Cyprus. Bus lines link all corners of the country. At that tourists have to be aware that the long-distance trips are made rarely – usually, no more than twice a day. On Sunday long-distance buses don't circulate at all. The trip by bus will cost you about 1 EURO.
The taxi quickly delivers you to any point of the island. If you decided to make a trip by taxi, there is no need to catch it in the street – it is easier to ask the manager of hotel to call a car for you by phone. Out of the hotel you can drop in to any cafe, restaurant or little shops – there they will with pleasure call a taxi. The counter is switched on at the moment you get into the car.
