I am coming to Cyprus in September 2014 and want to visit the north of Cyprus(Famagusta, enkomi and salamis). I am hiring a car in paphos, but I notice from other forums that taking a hired car from the south is not really possible. So, I would like to drive up to the nearest border crossing to Famagusta - which I think is the Black Knight, and park my car up on the south side, walk over the border, and get a taxi into Famagusta, and hire a taxi to take me to archaeological sites enkomi and salamis. I have looked at the day trips from paphos - and they are too expensive for me and they don't go to enkomi.
My holiday will be based in paphos, but I want to visit the north side(Famagusta, Enkomi and Salamis). I don't want to take a hired car over the border - too much hassle.
Is there an area around the border crossings, either black knight or others where I can park my hired car for the day? Are there taxi's waiting around the border area(north side)that will take me into Famagusta town? Does anyone know where the taxi rank in Famagusta town is - so I can negotiate with driver for 4 hour trips to sites?
thanks in advance for any information.
