The festival, which begins about two weeks before Lent, lasts for a fortnight and begins when the King of Carnival enters the town. This is followed by masquerades, partying and feasting.
The famous carnival is split in two parts. The first part is called Kreatini (meat week). Most people will consume a lot of meat during this week as it is the last time they will be able to do so before Easter.
The second part is called Tyrini (or Cheese Week). During this week, people will be expected to eat cheese and other dairy products.

The beauty of Kourion is that holidaymakers aren't just treated to a normal walk around the ruins; they can opt to take horse rides or visit the organic farmers and sample some of their produce. They are also offered excellent champagne to wash the fruits down with.
