Fascinating afternoon amongst the ancient ruins of Salamis. Easy to get to with ample parking. Would like to learn a little bit more. Very enjoyable. Small cafe selling refreshments on the edge of the conservation area. Romantic walk with my husband.

A fantastic very large site of roman ruins. Great informative notice boards all around the site with a superb eating place on your wayout. A small entrance fee of 9trl is pennies to the freedom you get walking anywhere around this site.

It's a huge Romain's ruins, you have a lot to view if you're interested in things like that, and you pay just a small thing. Negative: - a lot of trash - a lot of stray dogs (they could help them :(

What a fascinating way to spend a few hours. Hardly any visitors the day we went and we were able to explore the ruins of this ancient Roman city. Well preserved but fairly neglected by the Turkish administration who just appear to be interested in selling tickets- very cheap. Thorough recommend going in the off season due to few visitors...

The ancient city of Salamis is situated a few kilometers away from Famagusta, in Northern Cyprus. The city used to be the most important one in Cyprus and one of the most imporant in the Mediterrenean, now hosting a great number of archeological treasures. It's a wise choice to have a guide to explain you some of the amazing facts... More

These ruins are incredible, even more so that they in such good state with little protection. Wandering around, you can imagine the hammam in all of its splendor. A great way to spend an hour or 2.
