Famagusta ©
Just east of the capital sits Famagusta, an ancient port city with archaeological attractions, as well as an abandoned quarter that is popular among tourists as a symbol of the conflict between Turks and Greeks.
When in Famagusta, make a side trip to see Minia Kibris in Tatlisu, approximately Tatlisu away. There's still lots to do: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Ghost Town Varosha, walk around Dipkarpaz Milli Parki - Karpaz National Park Wild Donkey Protection Area, contemplate the long history of Famagusta City Walls, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read Famagusta road trip website.

Lagos, Nigeria to Famagusta is an approximately 17-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Lagos to Famagusta due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Lagos in August, expect nights in Famagusta to be about the same, around 27°C, while days are somewhat warmer, around 39°C. On the 14th (Fri), you'll travel to Kyrenia.

Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Saint Hilarion Castle, steep yourself in history at Church of Antiphonitis, get engrossed in the history at Ancient Shipwreck Museum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Kyrenia Harbour.
