I don't understand why people say Northern Cyprus government did not take care well of Salamis (as they say also about the other historical sites). Site is quite clean and well-preserved. The facilities nearby are not extravagantly expensive. We went to Salamis towards late afternoon...More

Some very good ruins as well as restored parts of the amphitheatre and gymnasium, including mosaics. Small cafe/shop for refreshments. Very hot and exposed/lacking in shade.

I doubt if this will be around for generations to see unless the northern Cypriat government take responsibility for their culture and heritage!

A historical highlight of the island, the amazing monuments tell the stories of the Salamis. Easy access by car, hire a tour guild will help the understanding and get knowledge of the explorer. An impressed sightseeing which must see in north Cyprus.

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.
