With two days in the historic port city of Larnaca, it's possible to see the city’s cultural highlights, spend time on the water, and try out all sorts of local food and wine. Here’s one way to plan your time.
Day 1: Old Town History, Food, and Wine
**Morning:**Spend your first day exploring the historic old town of Larnaca, stopping at highlights such as the Church of Saint Lazarus and Larnaca Castle. The area is easy to navigate on foot, but traveling with a guide allows you to quickly learn area history and avoid getting lost.
**Afternoon:**Next, grab lunch and devote some time to learning about (and tasting) Cypriot wine with a visit to the Oak Tree Wine Cellar & Tasting Room. As part of the experience, you try 10 different types of local wine. Just make sure to book in advance to secure your spot.
**Night:**Finish your day exploring the old town's culinary scene. While there are many great restaurants to try out Cyrpiot flavors (order a mezza to try lots of little bites), a walking food tour allows you to try all sorts of dishes and learn about local culture in an immersive way.
Day 2: Scenic Larnaca
**Morning:**On your second morning in Cyprus, take advantage of watersports activities on offer while the waters are still calm. Take a lesson in stand-up paddleboarding or kitesurfing for a solid beginner-friendly experience.
**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, choose between staying at the beach or heading back into the Old Town for lunch and shopping. For something unusual and memorable, book a vacation photo shoot session, in which a private photographer takes professional photos of you and your crew against the city's prettiest backgrounds.
**Night:**Wrap up your trip to Cyprus with a sunset cruise out into the Mediterranean. It's possible to charter a yacht for you and your friends if you book in advance. If you’d rather stay on land, head to the cafes and restaurants at Finikoudes Beach for great views over the water.
