“Old city nice and quiet.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Free area of Old City in Famagusta has plenty of souvenir shops, old buildings and few churches. The main attraction is Lala Pasha Mosque, the former St Nicholas Cathedral.
The condition of ruins is rather good.
There are few good, but expensive local restaurants there.

“Very quiet”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The old town is closed in the evening and far too hot to walk around during the day. Peters, the cake shop, is well worth a visit.

“step back in time”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

the history,the friendly - but not pushy shopkeepers - and the ice cream!! The churches and ruins are amazing - but it gets very very hot - at least 5 degrees higher than resorts - give midday a miss.

Only down - very unhelpful Tourist information man.
