    Visited Varosha as part of a TUI excursion to Northern Cyprus and was the part I was most looking forward to seeing. It was a very unique and errie place to visit and see all the buildings frozen in time from now 50 years since the invasion. We walked through the streets but there were people using bicycles, scooters and golf caddy style vehicles to get around. It was a very hot day but there was plenty of shade from buildings on the street.
    I would definitely recommend coming to visit this place.

    What an amazing place. I did not think that it would be on such a large scale. When you are used to curated sites such as exist in Europe it was quite a shock to have such free access (which might not be such a good idea for the ruins themselves) and such a lack of information and signage. If I were coming again I would print off a map and bring it as otherwise you are a bit hampered if you come without a guide as we did.

    Beautiful Gothic cathedral turned into an Ottoman mosque and as an architectural structure combining the best of both worlds. Pleasant welcome.

    If you are in N. Cyprus you really must visit Famagusta and its very beautiful walled city, wander the old buildings and ruins and soak up the history. There are good restaurants for the tired and hungry and some open markets for those in need of retail therapy. well worth the trip.

    We visited Famagusta, Somalis and Varosha ghost town and it was a lovely experience. The ghost town at Varosha is very sad to see as it’s a whole resort frozen in time 1974 following the invasion by Turkey. The buildings, shops and hotels are as they one were but now just derelict ruins. It’s tragic to think there was no good from the invasion other than to take possession of this beautiful place which must have been stunning. This is such a waste of a beautiful place and it’s very eerie walking round and imagining what it once was. There are Turkish flags all over the place, a very sad and wasted place. There is the most beautiful beach there which people were enjoying but the place itself is depressing. Somalis is very interesting on the other hand and here you can see original tiles and an old gymnasium and pool. Famagusta is a lovely area with a huge mosque and a lovely place with gift shops and restaurants. One I would recommend is Petek, a fabulous Greek restaurant and the most amazing bakery downstairs. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The surroundings are very pretty.

    Well worth the cheap entry fee. lots of artefacts dating back to thousands of years BC, a small cafe inside to get a drink.

    Spectacular castle ruin and if you climb the towers they offer lovely views across the harbour and the old town. Well worth a wander round.

    of the town of Famagusta. This was the only section of the wall that we were able to get onto. View of the mosque was especially good.

    An interesting history: originally the Church of St Peter and St Paul built by Simon Nostrano from the proceeds of a single trading trip to Syria in 1358-69, then converted to Sinan Pasa Mosque after 1571. Under British rule it became a grain store an is now used for arts and crafts.

    This place is cool. It's hard to get to. We were on a jeep tour. It's a church in a cave. Very unique.

    One of a number of spectacular ruins dotted around Famagusta Old Town. It must have been wonderful in its day and is still certainly worth a visit today.

    This was a nice place! A very nice monastery, nice surroundings and on the way we got to feed some rather stubborn donkeys with carrots! To drink from a sacred well did us good! Also nice place to buy olive oil, provided you didnt do it on the tourist street!

    At Magusa Kale Pasaj- the variety of things you can spend time on is extraordinary. This beautiful structure is made from recycled/reclaimed wood. Inside there is a store full of beautiful items such as souvenirs, crockery and hand-made glass lamps- all these items are made by local artists. Music is a big theme throughout Pasaj. They organize musical events every Saturday night, ranging from alt-rock to jazz. The caretakers of Pasaj are kind, generous and welcome everyone into their establishments. They offer a wide variety of drinks. A personal favourite of mine is definitely their hot americano. The coffee beans they use are clearly picked out with care. It is a delicious drink to have during cold winter nights. It's an immensely wonderful environment to part take in. The people are great, the vibe is lovely, all-in-all, 10 out of 10.

    This is an interesting place for those who are interested in history or early Christianity. You can see a picture of sleepers and pomegranate on the floor. The pictures have their meanings and legends.
