Discover Famagusta from Larnaca

10 Hours

Description

Cross the UN-patrolled border into northern Cyprus and visit two of the north’s most famous historical sites –The City of Salamis, an ancient city that unravels for about a mile along the shore, with an amazing amphitheatre and gymnasium as well as Othello’s Tower. You will also have the opportunity to wander around the old town with its Venetian walls and Gothic churches and take in panoramic views of the so-called 'Ghost Town' of Famagusta - the once-bustling holiday resort was abandoned during the Turkish invasion of 1974 and has remained sealed behind barbed wire barricades ever since. Your guide will fill you in with all the facts and figures.
