A lot of Arab states are not really at peace with Israel and so is Cyprus with the occupied North. I read somewhere (sorry, can't recall the source) that you might even be refused entry into Cyprus if your passport has a stamp from Turkey. As already mentioned several times, it is a bleeding wound ...

For what I know that is not true, we had no problems with turkish stamps. But if you enter Cyprus in the north, than you can have problem coming to the south.

Wow! Did you have a man with a red flag walking in front of the car? Last time we crossed, with the car, I think it was around 35 Euros for the insurance, which last for a month.
Also, things over there are considerably cheaper in most cases, but do be careful! The limit for bringing tobacco, cigarettes and alcohol back to the Greek side is ZERO, and if they find any, they WILL confiscate it at the crossing.
You can always walk across at Ledra street initially, this will cost you nothing, and you can walk around the northern side of Nicosia. You will have to fill in a small form and will then be given a piece of paper at the crossing, stamped with the day's date. Keep that paper, and you can use that without having to fill the form in as many times and they can fit the new day's stamp on it.
I haven't crossed for a while because they claim I was speeding on a day that I wasn't even there, and I won't pay the 60 euro fine, so they won't let me cross!!
