Closer to Africa and Asia than to mainland Europe, Cyprus is a cultural mosaic mingling Gothic cathedrals, Roman ruins, Ottoman minarets and Byzantine churches, as well as British links dating from the shipwreck of Richard the Lionheart. The atmospheric old town, 16th century fort and lively marina and harbour of Larnaca, make it a developing attraction in its own right. Within easy reach are the pine-covered heights of Troodos Mountains and sunlit villages and vineyards of the southern foothills.
Larnaca lies nearly 34 miles south-east of the capital Nicosia. It is also a seaport of great importance, having been enlarged after the main Famagusta port was absorbed into Turkish northern Cyprus. Modern Larnaca town lies over much of the site of ancient town of Citium, which was established in the 13th century BC by the Mycenaeans, and was afterwards rebuilt by the Byzantines. There are a wealth of archaeological excavations of tombs in the region, indeed, the modern name "Larnaca" means "funerary urn" in Greek.
