Discover the ruins of ancient Kourion on this self-guided walking tour. Listen to the history of these magnificent monuments using an app, which also includes a map, animated videos, and reconstructions to help bring these ruins to life.

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app that will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one.

See the House of Eustolios, where one of the city’s most prominent noblemen once lived. Learn about the ancient history of Kourion and its significance today. Then visit the amphitheater, where thousands of people gathered for plays and concerts. Admire the Kourion aqueducts and the agora, the public square where bustling markets once thrived, then continue to the public baths.
