Famagusta - excursions and day trips

Located on the eastern side of Cyprus, Famagusta is a picturesque and historic town. A day trip from Larnaca or Limassol to this city is very popular. The tour includes free time at the beach and sightseeing. The city is also known for its Roman ruins.

In the 15th century, Venetian merchants funded a church building boom in the city. Famagusta once boasted 365 churches. The Ottomans later converted many of them into mosques. The Gothic cathedral is now a mosque. The Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, formerly the St. Nicholas Cathedral, is also in the Old Town.

The city is surrounded by a 3.8 km city wall. In addition to the ruins of the Roman Baths, the ancient Greek Theatre is also found here. There are still standing columns in the amphitheatre.

The city is also home to the Othello Tower, a medieval fortress where the famous play Othello was staged. The Othello Tower was recently restored. In the early 20th century, the town was a major tourist destination. The Turkish army took control of the city in 1974. The Turkish military also seized the so-called "dead city" of Varosha.

The city is divided into two sections, the Turkish and the Greek. Visitors can either take a bus or a taxi to reach the area. Once in Varosha, visitors must cross the border to the Turkish side. Upon entering, you will not be covered by insurance. There are no cameras allowed in the area, so it is best to avoid taking photos.

Famagusta

The ruins of Salamis, a city on the east coast of Cyprus, date back to the Roman era. This ancient city was occupied by the Persians and Assyrians. It was the capital of Cyprus in 1100 BC. The ruins include a bathhouse and gymnasium. The Temple of Zeus Salaminos is also here.

There are plenty of beaches in the area. You can enjoy a walk along the beach or you can sit in the sun chairs and a bar nearby. The temperatures are moderate in the winter and can get as high as 35 degrees Celsius in the summer. In the spring and autumn, afternoons can be cool. You will need a warm top or scarf to protect your skin from the cold.

Another highlight is the archaeological site of Pompei. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a beautiful ancient Greek theater here. You can also visit the Gymnasium, which is filled with marble columns. The Love Bridge is also a natural rock formation. It is six metres long and forms part of the Ayia Napa district.

Ayia Napa is a lively tourist destination with lots of attractions to offer. There are 105 hotels along the coast. You can rent a scooter or hire a car for your stay in the area. You can also enjoy a guided tour or a private tour. Whether you're visiting the area for the first time or the third time, a tour is a great way to learn about the area's history and culture. You can also sample local products and honey.

FAQ
+
Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
+
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
+
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
+
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
