  • Specially to go and watch not advise. Several times drove by bus. If you wish you can and walk, just makes no sense. Read about the history of the aqueduct is much more interesting.

  • We went here with a bus tour and probably would have missed it otherwise. It is quite large and a surprise to see cutting into the modern landscape. Great photo-opportunities here. No cost.  more »
  • Will not be the aqueduct of Segovia, but here too the Romans put her hands, landscape welcomes you as saying here I am, not be well from where to where but here I am. 14 km from Larnaka.

Where to stay in Larnaka City

A small city, Larnaka's activity and accommodations center around its palm tree-lined seafront. Hotels and apartments on or near the busy main promenade provide easy access to the beach and the area's most popular restaurants; however, this convenience often comes with an increased price tag. Budget-conscious visitors should look for a room on the outskirts, where most of the city's main attractions will still be within walking distance (generally involving a pleasant stroll along the beach), although popping back to your room for forgotten beach supplies will not be as easy.
