Larnaca neighborhood recommendations

Postby riegal » Tue Oct 31, 2006 7:28 pm

I am moving to Larnaca. Two questions:

1) Nicest neighborhood in Larnaca to live in?

2) Best neighborhood in Larnaca for public transportation?

Thanks.

public transportation?

From my own observation public transportation is very sparse to say the least -- most of the folk I've seen using buses have been the older generation / school kids and the odd tourist --- I'm afraid it's very much a car culture in Cyprus -- much to the EU's frustration it will take many years ( if ever ) to convince the population of Cyprus to take a bus.

last time I was in Cyprus I was visited by a neighbouring family -- they live in the next street and it would have taken them less than 10 mins to walk -- they came by car :shock: .

On another occasion I was treated to a surprise visit by some of my Cypriot friends -- It was a big surprise as I wasn't in ( I do wish they would learn to telephone first ) -- I'd taken a walk down to the shops and sea front -- sadly my friends wife refused to believe I wasn't at home because my car was still parked outside -- and hinted that as I was in Cyprus alone perhaps I was with someone and didn't want to be disturbed :oops: :roll: .
I evenually met them for a coffee on the sea front and afterwards they insisted in giving me a lift home .

I wouldn't rely on a regular bus service to take you to and from your chosen village location.

I like New arradippou area - good for young families and
Ayia Faneromeni has always been a favourite
I also like Prodromos as thats where my family lived many years ago......
