“Take a trip to see this, you won't regret it.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

If you don't like sitting around all day, take a trip to Famagusta. Its a full day but well worth it. "Here's a tip". Don't but your tickets from Companies like Thompsons. They charge 70 euros per person. Pop down to the town and you can get the same trip for 30 euros. Remember you need your passport and take some water. It can get hot walking around.

“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.
