Road-trip to ancient Kourion: making the case for present-day time travel

With their inimitable flair, travel group Idyllic Cyprus head back in time to ancient Kourion, located west of Limassol, adding another visual argument in favour of exploring our beautiful island.

Not that any argument is needed. Shots of the – admittedly impressive – Greco-Roman Amphitheatre, initially built in the second century BCE and extended in the second century CE, and its surroundings, make the topic an open-shut case.

(Visitors here should also seek out Kourion’s many other splendours, such as the House of Eustolios, the Forum, Nymphaeum and Baths, and early Christian Basilica.)

Notable too, is the videography itself, from the stylish colour palette and wide, cinematic framing, to more technical whimsies like split screens and jump-cuts – all of which play with the past-present bending of time.
