Get to know the ancient city of Famagusta in this half day tour which gives you plenty of time to explore the city at your leisure.
The trip begins with a visit to the Famagusta Cultural Center in Dheryneia, where we can view the abandoned city from just a short distance away. We will see a short movie about Famagusta before the invasion and its evacuation in 1974. Leaflets and information are available free of charge.
You will then cross the "Green Line" as the border is known into the Turkish occupied territory. (Passports are required!) We get a firsthand look at the abandoned town of Varosha along the fence, before arriving at the famous beach of Famagusta where we can see the empty hotels lining the deserted beach.
We continue to the old town of Famagusta, circling the ancient moat of the walled city before we go within the city walls. Inside the castle walls you will find a wealth of ancient buildings and monuments including the impressive gothic Saint Nicholas Cathedral which is the focal point of the old town square.
Enjoy free time to explore the old town at your leisure, wander the quaint back streets, admire the antiquities or stop for a coffee in a quiet cafe.
