2 hour brisk walk round the site. Could be done in an hour so as the worth while area is close by the gate. Ruins very interesting. Go see the Public Baths, the Agora then cross to the Theatre and climb to the top of the seating. Return via the Amphitheater (little to see) to the far end of the Agora to take in the public loo - seats 44 in comfort! In passing look for ceiling mosaics and under floor heating.
With more time seek out the colonnaded road and city walls. There is evidence of much more but little excavated. Fascinating what was achieved so long ago and what has been lost subsequently.

Good walk around some pretty substantial buildings/ruins. Site almost as large as Ephesus. Ampitheatre excellent. Nothing really left of Zeus temple and it's a bit of a trek to find that out! Go on your own rather than on an organised trip. Easy to get to.

Salamis is an ancient city lies next to the sea.is an excellent place to visit if you like history and you can meet the ancient civilization of Greece and Greek Cypriots. Of course now is occupied under Turkey but is still open for turist with low price ticket.

The ancient city of Salamis lies ruined next to the sea. It doesn't cost much to go in, and you can wander for hours - taking a stroll along a Roman colonnaded street, wandering in the Forum, sitting in the ancient theatre, admiring the baths - it's not busy so the imagination can run riot. There's a little snack bar on site. Watch out for snakes though - we saw an enormous black snake in the Temple of Zeus (perhaps it was the god himself in another guise). It's all only a taxi ride or a walk along the beach from the Salamis Conti hotel.

Take a taxi. Good to walk round such an interesting layout. Gives a sense of bygone times. Have a refreshing lemon drink at the little café by the amphitheatre.
