Traditional Gastronomy Route

Larnaka Tourism Board and the 'Larnaka Rural Women's Association' have created a Traditional Gastronomy Route that takes in Larnaka region's quaint, rustic villages and their gastronomic delights for a self-guided tour of the tastebuds! Discover the traditional secrets of some of the island's favourite food by watching their preparation; take part yourself, and of course, sample it fresh!

The tour encompasses: baked goods, traditional sweets, fresh dairy products, products made with honey, olive and carob, handmade pasta and boutique wine.

The tour will also pass you by authentic tavernas and restaurants to enjoy Cypriot home cooked recipes utilising fresh, local products.

As the Cypriots say 'kali orexi (good appetite)!

Wine Route: Mountainous Larnaka - Lefkosia

Passing through 10 villages, this varied route comprises the expanse of the mountainous areas of both Larnaka and Lefkosia and takes in three wineries, quaint museums and workshops. Even though it is outside of the traditional wine regions, there are active winemakers here who have planted vineyards with the Assyrtiko, Malvasia Aromatica, Chardonnay and Maratheftiko grape varieties, ensuring their fast integration into the island’s winemaking portfolio.

A love of wine is combined with other cultural aspects along this route, such as the inclusion of the village of Lefkara - famous for its handmade lace embroidered linens and delicate filigree silver - along with the village of Fikardou, which is home to one of the oldest traditional wine presses in Cyprus.

This enlightening route passes through: Lefkosia, Skarinou, Lefkara, Kato Drys, Vavla, Ora, Odou, Farmakas, Gourri, Fikardou and Kalo Chorio.
