Soli / Cyprus

Soli is an ancient city on the island of Cyprus, located west of Kyrenia. It dates back to about the 6th century BC, and was one of the ten city-kingdoms into which Cyprus was divided at the time.

What remains today is mainly from the Roman period, most notably the wonderful mosaic floor of the basilica with its wealth of birds, animals and geometric designs and outstanding of all is a picture of a splendid swan.

There is a theatre but it has been restored so much that it no longer has any atmosphere of its original age.
