This historical site is now beyong preservation, some of the remaining mosaics and ornate ceilings just left to the elements and visitors walking all over what should be preserved. Dont even attempt if you are in a wheelchair.

The ancient city of Salamis must have been a beautiful city to chill and relax; right by the sea. The ancient theater and the gymnasium have been excavated; but there is still a lot more to dig out.

The Salamis ruins were well worth a visit. Many interesting sites in the area. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be on uneven surfaces and doing some climbing.

Just north of Famagusta in the Northern Cyprus area. You can get cold drinks and ice cream at a stand near the ampetheatre. You can drive into the area and park near sights. Go when it is cool!

Bigger than expected with lots to see, could spend a few hours here. Small cafe for drinks. Well worth a visit.

Visited this site as part of a Northern Cyprus tour, and did not know much about its history before arriving. Quite a large site, but only partly excavated, most work having stopped after the division of Cyprus in the 70s. Apparently this was the capital...More

The archaeological discoveries of Salamis ruins are very interesting. There are a large amphitheater, a college, some thermae, so on. I appreciated the quality of artifacts - like statues, columns. It's a "MUST SEE" for the tourists who arrived in Famagusta.

I suggest you look into car hire, I understand it is fairly cheap and reliable. Public transport is patchy at best. We were on an organised tour so our transport was provided.

sorry late reply but the best way to travel in Cyprus is by hire car .There are very few tour operators if any .Get yourself a good map and get lost you find the best restaurants and you will see the best parts of the island.
