According to TripAdvisor and the list of the Top 10 Traveler’s Choice destinations around the world, Limassol was ranked 3rd. Limassol is a city in Cyprus, on the southern side and the largest urban area. Although the town has a history to look back on, it has left behind only a few evidence of its past since the city has been modernized and changed into a cosmopolitan appearance. Taking this opportunity and the fact that I live there, I’m listing below my recommendation for the 10 Limassol things to do. 1. Visit Limassol Marina for lunch, dinner or a drink - an exclusive waterfront development where you can shop, dine or go for a drink. 2. Walk from the Old Port to Enaerios and enjoy the Limassol Promenade - i recommend to read my post. 3. Shop from the Square Market - for fresh vegetables, fruit and fish. 4. Go up to the Mermaid of Porto Bello to see amazing Limassol views - it used to be free but now you pay €3 but it's worth it. 5. Visit the Amathus Archaeological Site - one of the most important kingdoms of ancient Cyprus. 6. Visit the Castle of Limassol and have lunch or dinner at the surrounding restaurants. 7. See the ancient attractions at Kourion a spectacular archaeological site. If there's a concert or a theater planned there don't miss - the amphitheater is amazing during night when there's an event on - specially a concert. 8. Go to some of the famous beaches, Governors beach and Lady’s Mile - after you swim make sure to eat some fresh fish from the surrounding restaurants. 9. Visit the Cyprus Historic & Classic Motor Museum - a new museum in town where you can see classic old cars. 10. Attend the Limassol Carnival (around February) and the Wine Festival (end of August, beginning of September) I hope you enjoy these 10 Limassol things to do.
Limassol is a city on the southern coast of Cyprus and capital of the eponymous district. Limassol is the second largest urban area in Cyprus I’ve been living in Limassol for 6 years now and I’ve seen all the city improvements and all the new developments happening. One of the best improvements is the Promenade area (called Molos). They have done an amazing job. It’s right in the center of Limassol, near the Castle and Limassol Marina. I’ve been going for a walk here the last few weeks and I really enjoy it. Molos is a lovely area with paved paths, palm trees, sculptures, grass areas and decks going over the sea. There are some playgrounds for the kids, a skateboard stage, mini parks, benches to sit and water fountains. You’ll see many fishermen there fishing (and getting some fish – and octopus too). You can also rent a bike from the rental points and get around. You can also find some outdoor exercise machines and exercise. The area gets quite busy after 7pm during summer. I’ve noticed that there are many people walking as part of a healthy routine between 7-10pm. If you like walking your dog, apparently this is not the area to do so since dogs are not allowed. There are a few cafes across i.e.the Yellow Lounge Café Delice, Thalassaki and during summer you’ll see many stands selling charcoal sweet corn. When you stroll around Molos you can get back to the main road. If you don’t have a car you can take bus No. 30 any go anywhere you wish within Limassol. Enjoy my photos
