This full day tour to the occupied northern part of Cyprus takes you to three of the country’s most intriguing spots the ancient city of Salamis, the old town of Famagusta and the ‘ghost town’ of Varosha.

Your journey into the past starts all the way back in classical times at Salamis. You’ll explore its ancient roads and ruined temples as well as the partially restored amphitheatre and in the Monastery of St. Barnabas you'll enjoy the fascinating Icon museum.

After free time for lunch, you’ll explore Famagusta. Your guide will show you sights such as the Venetian castle and the Gothic cathedral turned mosque. Before returning to the south, there will be time to gaze at the haunting sight of Varosha. This once popular beach resort has lain abandoned since the Turkish invasion more than 40 years ago.
