Exploring Nicosia

Nicosia’s city center is easily navigable on foot, providing a pleasant walking experience. However, if you prefer public transportation, there’s an extensive network of bus services (https://www.publictransport.com.cy/) available. Additionally, taxis are readily available, but remember that in Cyprus, it’s customary to call for a taxi rather than hailing one on the street. To arrange a taxi, you can use the suggested number +35722100100 or inquire at your hotel.
Nicosia’s city center offers a plethora of sightseeing options, inviting places to stroll, and an array of restaurants and cafés. The entire walled city is perfect for leisurely walks and exploration. For information on important museums, walking tour recommendations, sightseeing opportunities, and more, visit the official website of the Municipality of Nicosia. There, you’ll find numerous suggestions to help you discover the city, along with a helpful city map.
For delightful dining experiences, you can explore some of the best cafés and restaurants located in the following areas:
Ledra Street
Onasagorou Street
Pindarou Street
Stasikratous Street
Makariou Avenue
Phaneromenis neighborhood
You can easily locate these places using Google Maps.
Ledra Street holds historical significance as one of Nicosia’s major commercial streets, predating the division. As you reach the end of Ledra Street, you’ll get a clear view of the buffer zone that separates the two parts of the city. At this point, you’ll also find a crossing to North Nicosia (occupied areas). You’re allowed to cross to the North and return on the same day, but make sure to carry a valid passport. In the North, the Turkish Lira is used as currency, although Euros are also widely accepted.
