Famagusta in turkish Gazimagusa has the biggest port and caused the prosperity during the long period of history.
Beatifull Venetian city walls are 3 km long and have 15 bastions including the Othello castle, which inspired Shakespeare for the Othello drama

We could only find one place to stay in Famagusta itself. If you want a nice hotel stay at the beach hotels nearby - if you can put up with anything stay at the terrible (but cheap) Portofino hotel.

If location is important stay there - if quality is important stay outside Famagusta at the beach hotels (they run a shuttle bus into the city)
