The ruins of the city is giving a good opinion on the original structure. A must-visit place for ones who are interested in history and excavations.

We didn't expect this site to be as big as it is. It's a wonderful place to visit - but would take the best part of a day to get around (so take lots of water with you).

The ruins are all available to walk around, over and up - which is a really nice surprise. The bits that we managed to see (we only allowed a couple of hours) were amazing - there were no barriers or bits that were cordoned off. This was a really nice surprise and meant that we could get as close as we wanted to the ruins.

We'll defiantly be going back for a visit when the temperature drops and we've got a spare day.

Salamis is one of those archeological sited that still leaves a lot to the imagination because very little of the site has been excavated. We were well prepared for a long hike but found that the distances in the guide book were highly exaggerated.

Salamis was one of the largest and most important cities in the ancient world (more then 100000 people lived there 2000 years agao!!) - 90 per cent is still under the sand, but you can get aan imagination ofhistory..

I visited Salamis on an incredibly hot day. Wandering around the extensive ruins I was fascinated by the overlap in influences from around the world. The remains are sufficient to imagine what the original structures were like - and afforded some welcome shade! Highly recommended.
