The DK Eyewitness Cyprus Travel Guide will lead you straight to the best attractions Cyprus has to offer. Fully illustrated with coverage of all the major sights from Nicosia to the harbour at Kyrenia. The guide provides all the insider tips every visitor needs, whether you are bathing in the Paphos beach sun, exploring the Troodos mountains or discovering the ruins at Salamis, with comprehensive listings of the best hotels, restaurants, shops and nightlife in each region for all budgets. You'll find 3D cutaways and floorplans of all the must-see sites including the monastry of Kykkos and the ancient town of Kourion, plus reliable information about getting around this diverse country. DK Eyewitness Cyprus Travel Guide explores the ancient sites, monastries, watersports and hill villages, not missing dramatic countryside and scenic walks. With all the sights, beaches, shops and attractions listed town by town, The DK Eyewitness Cyprus Travel Guide is your essential companion.
I own about 40 DK Eyewitness Travel Guides and usually take one on my travels to complement a more thoroughly written guidebook like Rough Guide or Lonely Planet. The photos are always excellent, providing a fine visual overview of places. DK Cyprus, though, was perhaps the least useful DK Travel Guide that I have ever used. The descriptions of places were drier than Cyprus' summer weather, and the photos added little to what was in the more compact, less expensive DK Top 10 Cyprus book. Carrying 4 guidebooks (DK, DK Top 10, Lonely Planet, and Rough Guide) for our travels throughout all regions of the island, I soon realized that I could have been perfectly happy if I had only carried Rough Guide and DK Top 10.
Excellent Guide Book

This is an excellent guide.I am from Cyprus,have travelled extensively around the island,and have suggested this book to visiting friends and relatives who have used it and also liked it a lot.The book has the History section right--possibly the best condensed history of Cyprus I have ever read--,divides the island in 5 very useful sections,selects the best sites and puts them clearly on excellent updated maps,it has great photos that help one decide one's itinerary,and,above all,it is very well written.This guide is much better that the Lonely Planet one--that does not even mention St Neophytos Monastery in Pafos,or the Lempa Experimental Village.Cyprus can be explored in around 10 days,and this guide can truly help you plan your itinerary and enrich your travel experience.Buy it!

The book was the only one we carried with us as we toured both the Republic of Cyprus (South) and the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. There is excellent information on line about the South, but the book was absolutely necessary for the North. It is light weight and tells about the sites. We used the internet to confirm times in the South and found some of the times for the North that way. In the south we used GPS but it doesn't yet exist for the north. This book had helpful informaion that with the maps provided by the TRNC tourism information booths, made it relatively easy to find our way around--remember the days before GPS and internet. In planning the trip I also used a couple of other tour books that I borrowed from the library.
