This beautiful coastal city is the third largest city on the island of Cyprus, and the gateway from which to explore all of the island's treasures. Boasting a bustling international airport as well as a 400-berth yacht marina, Larnaca offers holidaymakers a host of facilities, from shopping and dining to sightseeing, sunbathing and swimming.
Larnaca's history is legendary; the city is one of the oldest that has been constantly inhabited in the world. In fact, in Biblical times it was called Kition, and much of the archaeological treasures that have been discovered have been well preserved and are on display in the city's two main museums. Just outside the city there are numerous ancient ruins to explore, some of which date all the way back to Neolithic times. Visitors can explore Roman mosaics, Crusader castles and Byzantine monasteries here.
Of course, Larnaca offers much more than just ancient history. The city itself is a joy to explore with its old Turkish Quarter, churches and museums, and with its azure sea and excellent sand beaches, Larnaca offers a host of fun activities along its pretty seafront marina, with lively cafes and tavernas that offer spectacular ocean views. One of the most magnificent views is from Cape Greco, at the southernmost tip of the island.
Larnaca is also famous for its excellent silverwork and lace, both of which make excellent souvenirs. Book a private jet to Larnaca today!
