Experience

Highlights
  • Meander through Lefkara village where the famed lace is produced
  • Go back in time at the Choirokoitia Neolithic settlement
  • Spot flamingos and other waterbirds at Larnaca wetlands (maybe not in summer)
Full description
Explore the stone-built village of Pano Lefkara, which is the production center of the famed lace. Leonardo da Vinci visited the village and loved Lefkaritika lace. Besides meandering through the maze of the village, the village's central church is worth a visit and according to local tradition, it houses a piece from the Holy Cross.  Discover the Unesco World Heritage Site of the Choirokoitia Neolithic settlement. Go birdwatching at one of three wetlands near Larnaca, which host thousands of birds and tens of bird species, especially during the annual migration in spring but also in autumn. Thousands of flamingos find refuge during the cold months of the year here (in summer, water is scarce here and the number and no od species of birds diminishes).   Depending on your preference and available time, you can also go for a walk by the manmade lake of Lefkara. Visit other attractions on the way, depending on your pickup location, including the Kamares Aqueduct or the Panagia Angeloktisti Church in the village of Kiti. Complete your day with a delicious, traditional meal at a local restaurant.

Phivos is a super guy who totally adapts to his guests. Never felt rushed, learned a lot firsthand from a local.
