What to Expect
Itinerary This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Pano Lefkara, Pano Lefkara, Larnaka District
Stone-built Pano Lefkara acquired considerable wealth in the past century through production and trade of the famed Lefkaritika lace. As per local tradition, Leonardo da Vinci visited the village, loved and bought Lefkaritika lace. Besides meandering through the maze of the village, the village's central church is worth a visit ( according to local tradition it houses a piece from the Holly Cross).
One of the best preserved neolithic settlements and an Unesco World Heritage site - Besides the settlement at the top of the hill, there are also reconstructed huts that one can see. There is an entrance fee.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Nicosia, Nicosia, Nicosia District
Walled Nicosia flaunts impressive specimens of Cyprus cultural heritage from before 1000 AD until today. In a relatively small area, one is in the presence of remarkable buildings from different eras, as successive rulers and conquerors added to the city’s richness. Within the state-of-the-art during the time of their construction, well preserved Venetian Walls, one can meander for many hours, continuously discovering beautiful constructions. Renovated quarters, busy markets and museums, Byzantine and Gothic churches and palaces, (churches converted to) Ottoman mosques, khans, hamams, aqueducts and fountains, Victorian and neoclassical buildings are found intermixed throughout the historic city center. Both parts of Nicosia have beautiful buildings, including St. Sophia cathedral (converted to Selemiye mosque) and Buyuk Khan in the north and a number of Greek Orthodox churches in the south (Phaneromeni, Trypiotis, etc). The surreal experience of division and the presence of two communities from a different ethnic and religious background add more dimensions to the visitor’s experience.
How much time we spend here depends on the specific package and on how much time we spend on teh other attractions.
For all those who want to cross to the north part of the city, a valid passport or National Identity Card is a must
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Oroklini Lake, Oroklini, Larnaca Cyprus
A good birdwatching spot to the east of Larnaca, which birdwatching towers (we visit one). Bird species like egrets and flamingos are found here. Maybe during the hottest months, July or August it is not as attractive, as water dries out so we may decide to substitute it (eg with a visit to Angeloktisti church in Kiti village.
