The city of the golden sand
Crossing the red villages, we enter the suburbs of Famagusta and the checkpoint to explore the North.
We will first visit the ruins of Ancient city kingdom of Salamis with its elegant colonnade, hypocaust, mosaics and monuments and afterward, the Saint Barnabas Church and Monastery (Byzantine Museum- Archaeological Museum) and the old walled town.
We walk by the tower of Othello, the market street and visit the Lala Mustafa Mosque (Previously St. Nicolas Gothic Church), the Venetian palace and walk through the narrow streets.
After our lunch break (own expenses), we will drive through the main streets and alongside the ghost town of Famagusta. We stop at Salamis tower beach with its crystal clear waters and walk up to the closest point of the fenced city and admire the most cosmopolitan coastline in the island before 1974. (Swimming is optional).
Please bring your passport.
