If you plan to visit Cyprus and its capital then make sure that you consider our Nicosia car hire services for your trip. The city is located in the middle of the island and is by far the largest city in the country. The city is the administrative and financial hub of the island and it has grown by absorbing surrounding villages, it is now home to about a third of the entire population of Cyprus and is home to several universities and colleges.

The city is served by Larnaca Airport which is located forty kilometers away as such it would be a great idea to employ our Nicosia car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you can undertake the thirty minute drive to the capital in comfort, safety and without waiting around for the airport shuttle bus.

Due to its central location, Nicosia is a bit of a different experience than that which most tourists will expect or experience from the other cities and seaside resorts that Cyprus has to offer. It features neither the beaches nor the archaeological treasures that most of the rest of the island does but this has meant that the city retains an air of authenticity which cannot be equaled in the tourist hot spots on the coast.

Nicosia does have an Old City which features museums and old churches as well as some great little cafes where you can try the Cypriot coffee, not to mention the many woodworking shops that one can find if one looks hard and deep enough within the city.

The Cyprus Museum exhibits the best discoveries of Cypriot archaeology starting with the 9th millennium BCE to the end of Antiquity. Then there’s the Byzantine Museum which features a giant statue of Archbishop Makarios standing outside, this museum has one of the world’s best collections of Orthodox icons and related artworks which range in age from the 9th to the 16th century.

These are of course only a couple of the various museums, art galleries and art centers that Nicosia has to offer, you can see many more with the help of our Nicosia car hire services, not to mention the fact that having a car at your disposal will allow you to explore the city’s streets in detail.
