badly knocked about, but access is easy. The Theatre is best preserved bit and there is a bit of surviving decoration to search for.

Grown ups and children alike enjoyed the ancient ruins, lots to see and look at. The children (4 aged 6-9) were fine hopping about the ruins and intrigued by ancient life. A must visit for 9TL per adult (under 12s free!)

We were on a coach tour so had limited time to spend wandering around this fascinating place. Its well worth a visit and important to note that what you see is only a fraction of what has been uncovered so far.

Nice to see and a lovely walk round the ruins. Would like to see more information about the ruins to learn more about them.

Fascinating to visit and explore the nooks and crannies of this very important site. The area is very large so depending on time available you have to focus in what to see.

What can I say, it's a strange feeling to walk down the pathways and streets where an ancient civilisation once stood and generations of people roamed about living out their daily lives. Day four of our holiday took us to the ancient city of Salamis...More

I suggest you look into car hire, I understand it is fairly cheap and reliable. Public transport is patchy at best. We were on an organised tour so our transport was provided.

sorry late reply but the best way to travel in Cyprus is by hire car .There are very few tour operators if any .Get yourself a good map and get lost you find the best restaurants and you will see the best parts of the island.
