Do not miss the opportunity to visit the Famagusta in Northern Cyprus. Walk through the city and admire the famous Othello Tower and the Famagusta Gate, and of course, walk along the Venetian wall.


  • Immerse yourself in the history of antiquity in Ancient Salamis City
  • Take a look at stunning views from Observation point of the Othello Castle
  • And learn about the modern history: Varosha the Ghost Town (walking trip).


The city of Famagusta, rich in history, hides a lot of interesting things and requires a detailed study. Explore the Othello Castle, located in the heart of the old town. The castle was built in the 14th century by the Lusignan dynasty and named after Shakespeare's famous play. Admire the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas, a Notre Dame de Paris-inspired medieval church that was converted into a mosque during the Ottoman era. The church is an impressive example of Gothic architecture. Walk on top of the historic defensive wall that surrounds the old city and enjoy panoramic views of the city and surroundings. And of course, dive into the centuries, overlooking the ancient city of Salamis. According to legend, the founder of Salamis was Tevser, who is mentioned by Homer in his Iliad. In ancient times, Salamis was the largest city in Cyprus. And also enjoy the panoramic view of the infamous 'ghost town' - the 'Varosha' area, the exclusion zone as a result of the tragic events in the history of Cyprus.

Important Information

  • All visitors must pass through borderline security on the southern-northern Cyprus border. For most hotels in Paphos, we provide collection points at the hotel reception. In some cases, there is a possibility that the pickup point will be within walking distance or a short drive from your location due to logistics and limited accessibility of the driveway. If your hotel is not listed, or if you are staying elsewhere, please contact us so we can provide you with the nearest pickup point. If you do not know yet your accommodation location kindly let us know as soon as possible, but please don't worry! Within three days before the beginning of the excursion, we will send you a reminder. If you fail to arrive at the place and time indicated by EOS TOURS, this will be considered a “no-show” and no refund will be given. Detailed instructions will be provided in the information accompanying your ticket.
