Day Tour to the Ancient City Famagusta
Step into a time machine and embark on an adventure to the East Coast of Cyprus, where history and beauty collide.
Our day tour takes you to the port of Famagusta, a city steeped in ancient tales and brimming with historical charm. Wander through the enchanting Old Town, where the Gothic Cathedral of St. Nicholas, reminiscent of Notre Dame de Paris, awaits your exploration. Discover the iconic Othello Tower, meander by the Famagusta gate, and trace the Venetian wall’s storied path.
But that’s just the beginning of this journey! Next, we whisk you to a stunning beach with golden sands and turquoise Mediterranean waters. Here, you’ll have ample free time to bask in the sun, swim to your heart’s content, or soak up the coastal paradise.
Bid farewell to Famagusta as we venture to the ancient city of Salamis, where legends come to life. According to tradition, Salamis was founded by Teucer, a character immortalized in Homer’s Iliad.
