4-8.00pm Go to Makariou and Stasikratous streets for some window shopping or if you have time, head to the “Cyprus Handicraft Centre” in Strovolos for some locally produced, hand-crafted items like Cypriot lace, embroidery, leatherwear, mosaics, ceramics and pottery. Moreover, you can watch these products being made in various workshops. If you want to take back home some local herbs, spices, olives and other Cypriot products try “Agios Antonios Municipal Market or any of the “Bakali” shops.
9.00pm Have dinner in a tavern with some live popular Greek music, for instance in “Piroga” or “Mezostrati” both located in Evagorou Street just outside the walls where “Eleftheria Square” is being reshaped. Btw Cypriots don’t smash plates anymore while dancing as they swapped that with napkins. Don’t worry, its still fun!
11.00pm Go to “WSTD” or “Square” for some drinks and electronic beats with the youngsters of the city.
1.00am Discover how the locals dance the night out in “Box42” Club in Stasikratous Street or “Cafe Mercedes” at the end of Ledra Street. If you are more into the non-commercial underground music then “KlubD” is the place to be - go late as it stays open until morning.
