Passports / EU ID cards are required to cross into the North
This small group tour offers a unique insight into the history and flavours of the border region of Famagusta district. The day will start with two informational spots where we’ll meet locals who will give us interesting accounts of the troubles that sparked the Cyprus divide. You’ll then cross the border into the Turkish-occupied North where we’ll drive alongside the fenced-off ghost town stopping on the way for a closer look into the lost city. We’ll continue to the sandy shores of the Famagusta beach where the closed-off area ends to peek at the derelict hotels and empty buildings. Here we’ll also stop for a traditional coffee with fantastic views of the Ghost Town and a chance to discuss the story of the island. A visit to the quaint town center of Famagusta will follow, with the opportunity to see the St. Nicholas Cathedral that now operates as a mosque, before we head back across the border to enjoy an authentic meze lunch – a spread of delicious Cypriot dishes. We’ll end the day with a wine tasting that will include the famous Cyprus Commandaria before returning to your accommodation.
