Limassol Holidays

A vibrant and popular seaside resort, famous for its Autumn Wine Festival, and Spring Carnival, Limassol is Cyprus’ second largest town. An excellent choice of hotels and apartment blocks, many with their own beach, stretches right along the predominantly sandy coastline. The main tourist area offers shops, restaurants, bars and a buzzing nightlife, whilst a quieter atmosphere can be found at the Old Town and the harbour which shelters small fishing boats. Limassol offers many sites of historical interest, and is where King Richard the Lionheart married Princess Berengaria of Navarre in 1191, crowning her Queen of England. There are several interesting archaeological sites to visit in the area including the Ancient Curium and Amathounta where a gentle climb up its Acropolis rewards you with amazing panoramic views of the sea, mountains and Limassol town. Its central position on the Cyprus coastline makes Limassol a good base for those wishing to explore the mountains, or the other coastal regions.
