Famagusta is a city located in the Turkish part of the island. Before the war in 1974, it was a real pearl of Cyprus, the richest and most popular resort, as well as an important trade and economic center, bringing to the treasury up to 10% of the total budget of the country annually.
Today the situation in Famagusta is the opposite. It has not developed for a long time and has received a rather ominous nickname “Ghost City”, which attracts tourists very much. Famagusta is an old city and has many attractions, but the Varosha district is a real wonder here. Once the main resort center of the Famagusta coast, and today an empty ghostly quarter, attracts the attention of tourists, although it is almost impossible to get there. However, the lonely concrete walls of the once popular hotels are still perfectly visible from the beach in residential Famagusta.
To get to Famagusta from the airport, as well as from the center of Larnaca, there is no direct route. First you have to get to Nicosia, and then take a bus to Famagusta. As for the direct Larnaca-Famagusta road, the distance between them is about 50 kilometers. It will be much faster and more convenient to get there by car. There are three possible options:
You can rent a car in Cyprus if you have a driver’s license with you. If you are well-versed in the terrain or you will have such a person with you, this option can be one of the most convenient. It should be borne in mind that in Cyprus the traffic on the roads is left-hand.
An option suitable for those who value time and comfort. The transfer can be booked in advance by discussing the detailed route with the carrier. In addition, the driver will be able to meet you at the airport and take you to Famagusta straight from there.
Finally, the most common way to get to Famagusta by car is by taxi. Unlike a transfer, this type of transport can be ordered spontaneously. Russian-speaking tourists can use the services of a “Russian” taxi, such as “Taxi Olimp”.
The ordering procedure does not differ from ordinary taxi services, but it has a more extended list of possible options. You can order a car directly on the website.
