Famagusta City Walls features about 200 buildings--remnants of what used to be one of the world's wealthiest cities, according to legend. Built over the ancient Egyptian city of Arsinoe, the site had seen numerous different rulers. You can observe traces of the great civilizations in its Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance buildings, which are crumbling under the effects of time and battles. The town, however, still lives today and offers a number of quaint bars and cafes. Walk along the streets of a place that's torn between millennia.

  • Staying in Salamis Bay Conti and took shuttle to Famagusta City Walls. Interesting history of such a small port which has seen so many occupation over many centries. Worth a visit. Didn't walk around all the wall encircling the old town
  • Full of history and perfect for a good sightseeing. It will be your advantage to have a "local" to take you around for a better experience.
  • By itself it's nice, but something more could be added (tours, exhibitions, tables with explanations...)
  • Must visit spot ... well preserved fortifications ... if time allows plan to walk the entire perimeter on top of the walls
  • A little gem. Within the walled city are many shops, restaurants and the historic buildings. Beautiful and well worth the visit.
