Cross the UN-patrolled border into northern Cyprus and visit some of the north’s most famous historical sites. The first stop of this day trip is Salamis Archaeological Site, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from Cyprus’s east coast.
Salamis was the most brilliant ancient city in Cyprus and the capital of the island for more than a thousand years. The archaeological site of Salamis, culture and history is considered one of the most important not just in Cyprus but also in the Mediterranean Sea. Discover the archaeological site of Salamis as your guide shares with you the rise and fall of this Great Greek Kingdom. The next stop is Famagusta City where you will visit the Latin Cathedral of Saint Nicholas and Othello Tower.
Enjoy your free time for lunch or for strolling around in the old town. Before heading back, a short stop at Constantia Beach where you will have the opportunity for a panoramic view of the 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.
