FERRY: ITALY / GREECE - CYPRUS
The best connection is via Turkey - but it is a long travel.
I even recommend to use a flight from somewhere in the middle of Europe to Cyprus.
If you want to travel to Cyprus without using a plane, you will have to travel by train via Istanbul (change from the European station to the Asian station) to Karaman: either by day or night train - couchette is about EUR 10, but you can also get a normal seat.
From Karaman take a bus in direction of Silifke and then to Tasucu where you can find the harbour (in total EUR 10).
Use a ferry from Fergün Shipping: http://www.fergun.net/uk/index.htm
There are also ferries from Alanya to Cyprus, but very bad to reach by train.
In the past there was ferry connections even from Italy and Greece (Partras-Limassol).
But they stopped their service as the main destination was Israel. And there they had a security problem the last years.
