Magics of the past and present


The tour offers a fascinating insight into the culture and architecture of the great city.
We begin by passing the palm-lined seaside promenade with colonial buildings and visit the medieval castle. We continue our tour to St. Lazarus Church 890 AD the most important Byzantine monument surviving in Cyprus and the local market where you can get the real palm and feeling the town. The walk finally takes us in the narrow shopping streets with old and modern buildings and the Pierides Museum covering the Island's history from early bronze age till Medieval times.
We will then drive to the Halan Sultan Tekke Mosque framed with palm and cypress trees. The mosque is the most important Muslim sanctuary in Cyprus next to the salt lake where from December to April is full of Flamingos and other migratory birds. We also visit the Larnaca aqueduct.
We return to Larnaca to our starting point.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a wonderful morning in Larnaca. Despite very rainy weather with intervals of sun, Savvas was able to construct a great tour of the city mixing driving tour and walking tour. He is a very knowledgeable man who is proud of his country and it shows at every spot we stopped at. We are very happy with Savvas' caring for us during our few hours With him. Highly recommended
