About Larnaca

Larnaca is considered to be the oldest city on the island with evidence of habitation going back six millenia and evidence of this long history can be seen in the city’s old center. Just like most other coastal towns in Cyprus, Larnaca is divided into an old, historic part and the modern tourist-centric part which features hotels, restaurants and all the other attractions of nearby beaches.

The city itself is rather small and built alongside the coast, one could possibly walk around most of it, and actually the seaside Larnaca Promenade is a great idea for a nice stroll in the evening but you’ll still benefit from some Larnaca car rental services if you employ some.
