Parking in Larnaca

Parking in Larnaca

Am thinking of a holiday for 2 in Cyprus in early April - have just had to cancel a holiday due to (real) flu

First thought was flying to Paphos and staying there for a week - have been there before - and hiring a car and tour a bit

Would like to see more of the island and stay a couple more days, so now looking at flying to and from Larnaca, hiring a car the whole time, staying 3 nights in Larnaca then 6 in Paphos.

Does that sound sensible? Am concerned about parking in Larnaca though. Any suggestions about hotels or areas we should look at, where we wouldn't be troubled by parking regulations? BTW we aren't into either 5* or hostels! Will probably arrive just before midnight

And if you have specific views on car hire companies from the airport so much the better.

All friendly comments VERY gratefully received

Thank you

I live in Larnaca. Outside of the main tourist beach strip and busy town centre there isn't much problem with finding carparks. Hotels of course usually have their own.

You could consider an apartment for a short stay - walking distance from everything and designated parking.

Most hotels have their own parking areas, so I don't think parking would be an issue. I believe Oroklini/ Pyla area would give you a greater choice in regards to accomodation, and since you will have your own wheels, the 10min drive distance will not be a problem either. Since you have already visited Pafos and since you will be in Larnaca Area with a car, I would also suggest visiting the rural area of Larnaca as well ( it may be more worth than the Larnaca town itself). Lefkara, Katodrys, Choirokitia (archaeologigal site part of the UNESCO World Heritage), Tochni just to name a few worth visiting villages.

Also check this link for car rentals located at the Airport, and I believe they operate until late at night, if not on a 24h basis ( e-mail them for more details)
