Travelling to Larnaca
If you want to bring your own car to Cyprus, you will need to make use of the
car ferry services that are offered between the port town of Limassol in Cyprus
and Athens, Rhodes, Patmos, Crete and Israel. Foreign cars are allowed to be in
the country for up to three months, provided they have valid registration papers.
Both international and standard driver's licenses are permitted.
Presently, there is no rail network on Cyprus, but you can reach the island
from the UK or Europe by means of a ferry/train combination, using the British
and European services.
Bus and coach transport on Cyprus is extremely well priced, and the network
is extensive, linking all major towns and cities on the island. Buses run several
times daily between Larnaca and Ayia Napa. Intercity buses run from Larnaca
Airport, connecting it to all other centres in Cyprus.
The airport is situated approximately six kilometres from the city centre and
receives flights from most of Europe and the Middle East. Transport to the city
centre is provided mainly by private taxi, available 24 hours a day.
There are ferry connections between Limassol and various Greek ports, as well
as Israel. Unfortunately there are virtually no direct ferries to the Greek
Islands, and you will probably need to connect to these via Athens or another
