A quite large exciting area with many well-preserved statues and mosaics. The arena is also well preserved, and you can climb up to the top and get a good overview of the area. Remember to bring drinking water!

This is a fabulous historical site. There are so many great things to see, spread over a fairly expansive area (so take water and a hat!). Some parts really are particularly stunning, wonderful examples of the architecture. There's a little cafe at the beginning which...More

This is a must see for people interested in the classical period. We found it most impressive as we were also impressed with Kourion near Limassol. I recommend taking a good travel guide to fully appreciate this site.

Salamis is quite a large site with a lot to see including the amphitheatre, baths, latrines and some rare surviving frescoes. However there is little information in English so unless you are an expert in archaeology you really need a guide to appreciate it. It...More

We walked along the beach from our hotel to the ruins at Salamis. An amazing amount has been preserved including an amphitheatre, the hypocaust and a gymnasium. Access is not restricted to any of the ruins and a couple of hours are needed to do...More

The ruins are small and you really need a guide to explain many of the less obvious areas. There are information boards but not very much historical information given. Not wheelchair or buggy friendly. Good ampitheatre. Small cafe selling drinks and souvenirs. You have to...More

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.
