oin for a trip to the world famous ‘Ghost Town’!
On the eastern end of the island lies the beautiful coastal town of Famagusta, trapped in a time-lock since the Turkish invasion in Cyprus, in 1974. On the way to Famagusta the tour stops next to the church of Saint Barnabas, the founder of the Cypriot Orthodox Church, where you will have the chance to visit the tomb of Saint Barnabas who martyred in the area in 52 AD.
The trip continues with a visit to ancient city-kingdom of Salamis, founded right after the Trojan War by the archer Teucer who came from the Greek island of Salamis. Time will be given for a guided tour around the archaeological site which includes a beautiful ancient Greek theater.
You then drive to Famagusta where free time will be given for lunch (optional extra) and sightseeing. During your free time there, a walk around the Venetian Walls that surround the old town and a visit at the Gothic Church of Saint Nicholas is highly recommended! On the way back you drive close to the ‘Ghost Town’, the sealed-off area of Famagusta.
