Rich in history and culture

Limassol Cyprus

Limassol, on the southern coast, is the 2nd largest town in Cyprus, with major involvement in the wine industry - visitors to wineries are very welcome. Limassol is also a popular tourist destination, an important business centre, port and is home to many archeological sites, here old blends easily with the new. For the night owls the variety of nightlife is good. Most of our hotels are east of Limassol, on the beach. 

Archeological Sites

The city of Limassol is situated between the ancient cities of Amathus to the east and Kourion to the west. Points of interest include Crusader history - Kolossi Castle, Limassol Castle, Kourion (Curium) and a wealth of museums.

Days out from Limassol

A short drive out into the surrounding countryside will take you through vineyards and quaint wine producing villages. The Troodos mountains are only 30 minutes’ drive away and well worth the effort, particularly appealing on dry and hot summer days as the temperatures are cooler in the mountains.  For a change of scene visit Paphos along the coast – but make sure you stop at Curium and Pissouri on the way.

There is an excellent range of excursions bookable through our representative.


Limassol offers an abundance of entertainment throughout the year. One of the brightest events is the 10 day pre-Lenten Carnival (usually in February/March), with masquerade parties, balls and parades, singing and dancing along the streets of Limassol. In the beginning of May, the Flower Festival celebrates the beauty of spring with a floral exhibition boasting the rich variety of Cyprus’ flora. Perhaps the most popular is the 12-day Wine Festival at the end of August - early September, held since 1961, honouring the island’s long tradition of winemaking. This lively event which takes place in the Municipal Gardens, offers free wine alongside theatre presentations, dancing and stands with various traditional food specialties – an event not to be missed.
