Utter rubbish - bought this as I had the last one which was great - this seems to have been lifted wholesale from various sites. Talks about fountains which aren't there and cobbled streets which must have been tarred at least 5 years ago ( going by the state of the tar ). DON'T buy use google maps and trip adviser instead for up to date ACCURATE information. ( Google maps is great for finding other things to see close to you - also great as a sat nav in the car )
This 288-page book - the 7th (printed) edition of February 2017 - is an interesting and readable guide to the north-eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. This is not a glossy guide with lots of colour pictures, but it is a well-designed and laid out guide, with colour used primarily in the introductory section. It is intended to be a meaningful guide to things to see and do, and not just a list of things to see and do.
It is broken down into four major sections:
Page 4 - Plan Your Trip: This section is an introduction to Cyprus, with features on what to look out for (Cyprus’s Top 18 sites/sights), what you need to know in advance, and all the important stuff for visitors.
