We have visited this ancient ruin every time we have visisted Cyprus over the last 18 or so years. It was built by the Persian rulers of nearby city of Marion in the 5th century BC on a hill some 250 metres (825 feet) above sea level to spy on the nearby city of Soli, which is also well worth...

Great views from the hilltop up and down the coast but not too much remaining other than wall remnants. But worth a quick visit nonetheless if you're enthusiastic about such things or even just in the area. Soli down the road (with a very tricky-to-spot turnoff) is more interesting. Most intriguing was the modern black marble slab hidden behind the... More

Very nice site with an interesting history you should read! We were there all alone. The view to the sea is very nice. After Vouni go see the nearby ancient village of Soli, the ancient rival!

Make this a paired visit with Souli Remains of about 5 periods of settlement, from Persian onwards. Useful leaflet and some labels on site. However these are possibly the best views in TRNC, take water and a picnic, tuck your self under an olive tree and relax.

Access is by a narrow road with just a few passing points. Once you arrive at the palace the views over the sea are fantastic. Only the foundations of the palace remain but the various rooms are well signed. Unfortunately, not a site for the disabled. The site should be visited in conjunction with the ancient city of Soli which... More

To the west of Kyrenia and past the orange groves of Guzelyurt this part of North Cyprus is well worth visiting and the site of Vouni Palace (after a steep mountain road to access it) is amazing. It is some 250metres above sea level and overlooks the coastline. We went on a warm clear day and the views are breathtaking.... More

This place is easy to find and is around four miles from the Soli archaeological site. The road up to the site is a little precarious (uphill, narrow and bendy), particularly if you meet a vehicle coming the other way. The entrance fee was 7TL/3 Euro and you get a leaflet with a map of the site on the back.... More

This was the most magnificent site we visited in Northern Cyprus. The atmosphere is heady, the views are breathtaking and you need at least an hour to drink it all in. Do take water and a picnic- it is a sublime spot to sit and quietly enjoy. Tourists pay more than Cypriots to enter.

It is situated on a hill 250 metres above sea level, built by the Persian sympathiser king of the city Marion placed in the same region, possibly to spy on the city of Soli. There are 4 different construction periods and the city is built on a sloping hill on 3 terraces. As my degree is in Archaeology I was... More
