As the third largest island in the Mediterranean, Cyprus is still small enough for tourists to get around fairly easy. It’s up to you if you choose to drive or take public transit. But many tourists are comfortable with the roads, smooth driving, and signage to maneuver in a rented car or even via motorcycle. Others, who find the roads a bit worse for wear, may opt for the straightforward public transit system.
Bus service on the Southern portion of the island is fairly frequent and reliable. The buses do look a little outdated, but they are generally safe and comfortable. The bus is the cheapest form of public transit from a village to a city and vice versa from Mondays through to Saturdays. There is no bus service on Sunday, but you may be able to book long-distance routes through a private tour operator.
