Cyprus prices: Food, drink, alcohol and dinners at restaurants

Cyprus has for years been among hottest holiday destinations in Europe. Although closer to the Asia, the Republic of Cyprus is within the borders of the European Union and its currency is euro.

Prices in Cyprus are moderate. Some say it is a little more expensive than in Spain or Greece. Others, however, believe they are at a similar level.

It all depends on the wealth of the wallet, the quality of products and services bought, and the season in which we intend to spend our holidays in Cyprus.

Current prices in Cyprus

The most expensive city is of course Nicosia, the capital of the island and places of large tourist accumulation such as Ayia Napa, Paphos or Limassol, where it will be more expensive, especially closer to the sea and historical monuments.

Lower prices will be in well-known and crowded resorts, such as Larnaca.

When it comes to shopping in Nicosia, it is worth going to the Turkish part and stocking up on souvenirs or food there.

In general, on the north side of the island is a bit cheaper.

However, trips there take place on their own, due to the complicated political situation of this island.

Let’s get to the specifics and check what are the specific and current prices in Cyprus.
