Second in size only to the Cypriot capital of Nicosia, Limassol is a modern and vibrant metropolis, with urban limbs that stretch out from the centre of the harbour-front to the foothills of the Troodos Mountains in the background. Here you can explore the various possibilities that the city has to offer. Walking along the promenade toward the Old Port and the Limassol Marina, you can gaze across the clear blue Mediterranean Sea on one side, while finding the perfect little street to dart off into on the right. The Ayia Napa Cathedral and the fortified walls of the nearby castle are definitely worth a visit, and should you be on the lookout for something really exotic, then head to the Limassol Zoo, which is situated just north of the harbour-front. On Sundays, there’s also a lively market to be found near the promenade, where you can buy everything from souvenirs to little trinkets and clothes. Right next to the market, you’ll find the Old Port, where cafés and shops are set against the backdrop of tiny fishing boats. This area stretches into the Marina, with even more shopping- and dining options. During the evening you can stroll along the seafront and look at the lit-up buildings being mirrored in the glistening harbour. The location of Limassol means that it’s possible to easily venture further inland and discover various parts of Cyprus. On the borders of the city, you can explore the former crusader stronghold of Kolossi Castle, which lies near the ruins of the ancient city of Kourion. Explore the remnants of the amphitheatre and other structures, before going for a dip in the nearby Chris Blue Beach. Alternatively, you can also head to the Watermania Park, where slides, pools and other aquatic options allow entertainment for the entire family. Regardless of what brings you to Limassol, you’re in for an amazing holiday.
