FAMAGUSTA &NICOSIA TOUR
Today we drive to the east of the island which is nowadays known as Famagusta. Our first visit will be to St. Barnabas Monastery. Every year on June 11th on his birthday a big Mass takes place. Why is he so important? I will tell you all about it when we visit the place. The Medieval town of Famagusta which is surrounded by high walls will be our second stop of the day. We’ll park our car and start to walk in this historical settlement. St. Nicholas Cathedral which was built 1298-1312 will be visited. We cannot skip the Venetian Palace and its surroundings. After we drink our traditional Cypriot coffee we’ll hop in the car and drive to Ghost Town. This place is originally named Varosha. As it has been abandoned for 45 years it's known as Ghost Town. We then drive to the capital of the island, which is the only capital that is divided into 2 parts in Europe. We enter the old city from Kyrenia Gate which is also surrounded by high walls. Venetian Column and Buyuk Han are some of the historical sights that we'll visit in Nicosia. A free time in Arasta is also in the program where you can walk around do some shopping with locals and try the tasteful Cypriot dishes.
If you want to see 2 cities in your limited time while in Cyprus this tour will be ideal for you. You'll explore the beauties with a knowledgeable guide who was born and brought up in Nicosia and spent her summer holidays in Famagusta. So do not miss this tour.
