"There is plenty to do in this seaside resort; there are great shops, bars and restaurants, as well a vibrant nightlife. The new marina is a brilliant addition to this resort and a must-see for the evenings."
An excellent base from which to explore Cyprus, thanks to its central location, Limassol, has a wide selection of beautiful beaches, historical sites and other activities. It is ideal for beach holidays, thanks to its predominantly sandy coastline and azure waters, with a temperate Mediterranean climate, which means that it is hot for the majority of the year. The stunning port city 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, site of an ancient Mycenaean town, and Amathounta where a gentle climb up its Acropolis rewards you with incredible panoramic views of the sea, mountains and Limassol town. As it is large and well populated the main tourist area offers shops, restaurants, bars and a buzzing nightlife, while a quieter atmosphere can be found at the Old Town and the harbour, which shelters small fishing boats. With a variety of waterparks, theme parks and other activities it is great for family holidays, making your stay there unforgettable. All of this ensures that Limassol is one of the finest holiday destinations in Europe.
