Famagusta Walled City, Famagusta
(4.3/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Famagusta Walled City features about 200 buildings--remnants of what used to be one of the world's wealthiest cities, according to legend. Built over the ancient Egyptian city of Arsinoe, the site had seen numerous different rulers. You can observe traces of the great civilizations in its Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance buildings, which are crumbling under the effects of time and battles. The town, however, still lives today and offers a number of quaint bars and cafes. Walk along the streets of a place that's torn between millennia. Using our world travel planner, Famagusta attractions like Famagusta Walled City can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
