About Larnaca

Larnaca Airport Car Rental – Larnaca seafront is vaguely reminiscent of the Continental promenade, with its line of mature palms and its relaxed air of sleepy charm. Cafes and tavernas line the area near the sea, making this a popular spot with visitors and Cypriots alike during the long summer. Nearby is the Marina, frequented by yachtsmen from all over the world. At the western end of the promenade is the town's l7th century fort, which now houses the Larnaca Mediaeval Museum.

Larnaca's links with Christianity go back to the very beginning for the town's first bishop was none other than Ayios Lazaros, who chose to live his `second life' there after Jesus had raised him from the dead. A church built in his name exists on the spot where his remains where said to be found.

On the edge of Larnaca Bay the palm-lined seafront of Larnaca town bustles with cafes, tavernas, shops and bars. Historic charm is lent to the scene by its fortress castle, now used as the town's summer cultural center. Larnaca is an excellent base from which to get to know the central and eastern section of Cyprus, and its proximity to the International Airport and a number of luxury hotels that have been developed along its beautiful sandy beaches make this a popular holiday choice.

Larnaca was originally known as Kition, or Khittim, and legend has it that Noah's grandson Khittim founded the first settlement at the spot. But the name Larnaca probably comes from the Greek word "Larnaka", which means sarcophagus many of which have been unearthed in this area.
