Full description
Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Limassol in the morning, and then travel across the UN border to enter the Turkish-controlled north of Cyprus.

Visit two of the most famous historical attractions, including the archaeological site of Salamis, an ancient city-state that spreads for about a mile along the coast just north of the modern city of Famagusta. Marvel at the remains of the amphitheater, gymnasium, and other relics that date back through the history of Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, Ancient Greece and more. 

Wander around the old town of Famagusta to admire its imposing Venetian walls and Gothic churches. Get panoramic views of the ghost town of the once bustling holiday resort that was abandoned during the Turkish invasion of 1974.
