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 and cool temperatures.

Salamis is the site of an extensive archaeological site which was used established by the Romans but used and developed by many cultures. The site is @5kms North of Famagusta and on the coast. The site includes an Agora; Amphitheatre; Roman roads; Theatre; several villas & palaces & an olive oil mill. It is worth exploring the full site (@90 minutes & 3 miles walk) to capture an insight into the full extent of this settlement. Probably only 10% of the site has been excavated.

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 about this site. During summer months is mandatory to carry water and a hat or umbrella due to the high temperatures and the soil that reflects the heat.

I am not an expert, just normal tourist, but I like it so much what I saw here. I spend two hours walking with a friend and book guide and enjoyed a lot. Pitty that some parts of ancient ruins are not well protected and you can easily see a damage of visits. Thre is an entrance ticket price of 4eur per person (9TL) and students and children have some reductions.
