Much is inaccessible. What is available is interesting depending much on guides. Uneven terrain. Take water and sun cream

If only a national museum would take some interest in this site. It is crying out for some professional attention. Such a fabulous site deserves so much more care and attention.

I can’t believe how accessible The ruins are. We were walking down the street in the amphitheatre in the public bath looking at what people would’ve seen 2000 years ago. It was amazing and I would definitely recommend.

Salamis was the capital of Cyprus from around 1200 - 300 BC. This has left it with a wealth of public buildings. Although much of the huge city is still underground, like most visitors I explored the leisure complex. The baths, gymnasia, and theatre have...More

Only 2 Euros each to get in. Very interesting to walk round the site for an hour or two. They still have plenty of archaeological excavation work to carry out, but a lot to look at for all ages. Bedi's bar as you leave...great sea...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.
