Larnaca: Shopping Holiday
White washed houses, palm-trees and sandy beaches
Considering the modest size of Larnaca, the variety and sheer number of shops is remarkable. In the city centre, pick up a bargain at one of the bric-a-brac shops, or wander round, try and buy some designer clothes at these privately owned stores. The Greek’s rich culture and history means that they have many unique relics. Woven curtains, silverware, silks and handmade lace are just a few beautiful items on sale.
In addition, the handmade simple baskets are traditional items that have been produced on the island for decades. All these beautifully hand constructed goods are great artefacts to furnish your home, and are ideal for presents to friends and family back home. For some more conventional shopping, hit one of the newly built shopping malls in Larnaca. Shops open at 9am until 1pm and reopen after the siesta period at 4pm and then close at 8pm. If you are planning your shopping spree to Larnaca during August, you can pick up half price bargains during the summer sales. In Larnaca’s diverse shopping districts, you will definitely have the opportunity to shop until you drop.
