“A curiously dull site”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

It may have been the heat, but my companion and I, after about an hour, my companion and I felt that we had exhausted the joys of Salamis. Some interesting pavements, a good theatre, and the wild flowers were lovely, but otherwise...............

“Stunning Archaeological Site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

A most amazing archaeological site - a whole ancient Greek city covering a huge area over which you can wander (and wonder) freely.
Some areas have been sympathetically restored (but not overly so), some left as they were excavated.
The site is so vast, that even if there are several coach parties there, you hardly notice them.
There are no refreshment facilities on site (restaurant just outside the entrance) so take plenty of water; you could spend most of a day here and not see all of it.
Good beach adjacent for a refreshing swim afterwards.

“Beautiful Historic Site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Interesting historical site, covering a very large area of ground - bring ample water, as a fair bit of walking is required. Great for taking photos & remember to bring a swimming costume & towel to go swimming afterwards! Clearly signposted from Famagusta.

Liked the room and reception staff. Didn't particularly like the queues in restaurant nor the beach.

“Visited this Roman Town on last visit.”

You could wander through this ruin with no boundaries. There
was so much to see! It can take hours to walk round!
