Famagusta

— 2 nights

City of 365 Churches

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.
Spend the 4th (Sat) exploring nature at Dipkarpaz Milli Parki - Karpaz National Park Wild Donkey Protection Area. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Salamis Ancient City, see a world frozen in time at Ghost Town Varosha, contemplate the long history of Famagusta City Walls, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum.
