Famagusta Salamis Private Jeep Safari

“Adventures loaded with History and Archaeology.”

A trip that gives you the chance to visit the beautiful coastal town of Famagusta and to go as near as possible to the fenced and sealed – off part of the town that is known all around the world as the “Ghost Town”. Visit the Monastery of Saint Barnabas, the founder of the Cypriot Orthodox Church. Visit the ancient city-kingdom of Salamis. Next stop is the Famagusta old Town Centre to see the Venetian Walls in the old part of the town and a visit at the Gothic church of Saint Nicolas and Othello Castle. The last stop will be the beach located right next to the “Ghost Town”, a long stretch of golden sand.

The first stop is the Monastery of Saint Barnabas, the founder of the Cypriot Orthodox Church. There you will also have the chance to visit the Icon Museum of the Monastery as well as the tomb of Saint Barnabas who martyred in the area in 52AD. The trip continues with a visit to the ancient city-kingdom of Salamis, founded right after the Trojan War by the archer Teucer who came from the Greek Island of Salamis. Time will be given there for a guided tour around the archaeological site which includes a beautiful ancient Greek theater and marble columns, Roman baths and a Gymnasium (optional extra).

You will then drive back to Famagusta old Town Centre, where free time will be given for lunch (optional extra) and sightseeing. During your free time there, it is highly recommend that you walk around the Venetian Walls that surround the old part of the town and a visit at the Gothic church of Saint Nicolas and Othello Castle (optional extra) which is mentioned by William Shakespeare in his play “Othello”. Your last stop will be the beach located right next to the “Ghost Town”. There you will have the chance to swim in the crystal clear blue waters of the beautiful golden, sandy beach of Famagusta, whilst taking in the eerie sight of the abandoned buildings which have been desolate since the Turkish invasion in 1974. On your way back we drive right next to the “Ghost Town”, where you can see exactly how the area that was once the best tourist resort of the island, now looks like.

Program may alter slightly during the winter months between November till March.
