Senior Travel in LarnacaEdit This
A beautiful seaside city located on the island of Cyprus, here are some Larnaca senior travel tips for anyone planning a vacation. Larnaca is a very old city, with ruins dating back as far as the 13th century B.C., so there are some very interesting sights and museums all around the city. Larnaca is also well known for its promenade, the Phinikoudes, lined with palm trees and interesting shops and restaurants.
Despite its importance to the island of Cyprus, Larnaca is a relatively small town, leading many locals and tourists to just walk everywhere. In particular, the Phinikoudes, home to many of the best restaurants in the city, is accessible only by walking. If you don't want to or can't walk everywhere, taxi's are going to be your best bet to get around the city. Although taxi's are legally required to use a meter, many don't, so be aware of this. If you do take an unmetered taxi it is best to negotiate the fare ahead of time. Renting a car may be a good idea since there are many interesting sights that lie just a short drive away from the city.
Cyprus is located south of Turkey on the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, and Larnaca receives the full benefit of the region's much loved climate. Temperatures in Larnaca will only very rarely drop below 60 degrees F, and in the summer hotter temperatures are always balanced out by the cool breezes coming off of the Mediterranean. Larnaca receives the most rain between November and January, although if you are a nature buff this might be the perfect time for your vacation, as the rain fills up Larnaca Salt Lake and attracts migratory pink flamingos. In general, however, the climate is almost always agreeable and great for senior travelers.
