2022 Venue and Hotels Nearby

Covid-related Information:
We are hopeful that we could meet there in person this Spring. The conference is NOT organized as a hybrid event, thus participation means travelling to Nicosia. However, if the sanitary conditions are such that travels are suspended and events cannot be held, the conference will be turned into an online event.
Please do check most recent information and requirements through the official Cyprus Flight Pass.

Travelling to Cyprus:
Due to the geopolitical situation on the island, citizens of any country, whether or not they need a visa to travel to Cyprus, are advised by Cyprus MFA that “The legal points of entry to the Republic of Cyprus are the intenational airports of Larnaca and Paphos and the ports of Larnaca, Limassol, Latsi and Paphos, which are situated in the area under the effective control of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus” (see its visa information page).
Among both legally recognized Cyprus airports, Larnaca international airport is the closest to Nicosia (40 minutes by car, taxi or bus), while it takes 2 hours from/to Paphos international aiport. 

Conference Venue:
GIG-ARTS 2022 will be held at Frederick University, Nicosia Campus, situated in the Pallouriotissa area, just two kilometers from the city center.
Tassos Papadopoulos Amphitheatre
7, Yanni Frederickou Str.
Pallouriotisa, Nicosia 1036

Ground transportation:
Shuttle and other buses:
There is an airport shuttle bus operated by Kapnos Travel, but it does not reach Nicosia city center, so, from the shuttle drop off point in Nicosia, one needs to either take a taxi or another bus to the hotel). Links to the shuttle bus service and bus services in general below:
