This privately guided tour takes you back to the Middle Ages as we explore the „walled city“ of Famagusta. Or rather, the old town of Gazimağusa, as Famagusta is called in Turkish. You will visit narrow alleys, trendy shops, cosy restaurants and, of course, the world-famous sights. Especially impressive is the large cathedral, now a mosque (Lala-Mustafa-Pascha-Mosque) and looking similar to Notre Dame in Paris, rising up from the sea of houses. An old legend says that in its heyday, Famagusta had a church for every day of the year, which earned the city the nickname „City of 365 Churches“at the time. From Famagusta it is only a few kilometres to the ancient Roman city of Salamis. Romans already knew how to enjoy the comforts of life back then and so also had a preference for baths, today we would call them wellness oases. We will take another leap back in time and explore such an oasis with you in Salamis and will be able to see the Sudatorium (warm bath), the Caldarium (steam bath) and the Frigidarium (cold bath) in the buildings of the Great Hall. In ancient times, the city was very colourful, with marble columns decorated with coloured stucco, coloured statues and numerous colourful mosaics, of which unfortunately only a few remain. Discover the well-preserved amphitheatre with us, close your eyes and imagine a spectacle from antiquity. Before we start the return journey to the hotel, we invite you to a restaurant (if open right next to the ancient city of Salamis) for a local lunch.
