Salamis Ancient City reviews
A beautiful place... especially nowadays... Last days of December 2019... cool weather with wet grass and pathways unlike summer time... jogging and sightseeing is highly recommendable.
This was wonderful to visit, and a bit unexpected to find. The grounds are pretty big, and there's a lot to see. The theater was great (very well intact), the inlay floors, stone columns, etc. We spent about 3 hours there, and could have done another 30 minutes easy.
