Getting to the island of Cyprus by air
Getting to Cyprus is easier than ever. More than 33 scheduled and charter airlines, including Cyprus Airways and Eurocypria, operate scheduled flights from and to Larnaca International Airport (Larnaca airport is situated 5 kms from Larnaca town centre) and Paphos International Airport (Paphos airport is situated 15 kms east of Paphos town centre)
Getting to the island of Cyprus by sea
It used to be easy to travel to Cyprus by train and ship via Athens, and then using one of regular shipping lines from Athens Piraeus port to Limassol. However, all three services stopped running indefinitely around 2001.
However, Louis Cruise Lines sail from Piraeus to Cyprus every week from June to September. It is possible to apply through Louis cruise lines for a fare to and from Cyprus
Other sea routes to and from Cyprus worth considering
As the crossroads of the Eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus can also be a great component of a Middle East adventure that combines a visit to the island with Israel, Egypt or nearby Greek islands such as Rhodes, Crete and more.
Short cruises to these destinations and even seasonal longer cruises further away to other European countries are a popular option for many visitors to Cyprus
