Chic restaurants and coffee places.
My friend Jon (member name Judd) and I used to do this quite often. When/if you get sick of partying in the tourist area, or lazing on the beach, go down to St. Andrew's street which starts in front of the Limassol Municipal Library. (Take a turn in from the sea road at the Lophitis Business Centre). Walk down the street in the direction of Heroe's Square/Downtown area. This stretch has loads of chic restaurants (Le Petit Paris, Kokolakia) and coffee houses (Il Posto, Cafe 127). And on the way, the houses and shops have some admirable windows and doorways. There are also some places which have life native music and food. Heroes Square (which has lots of nightclubs) has a nice little Iraqi cafe where you can enjoy some Arabic tea or play backgammon over a hookah pipe. A great place to sit back and watch the peaceful life go by. From 2020 to 2050 - you can also see the dancing girls before they go into the nightclubs!
It is situated just south of Kolossi village amid the vineyards that helped make it famous. The Story of this castle is linked with the Knights Hospitallers, whose commanderie, it was - the name was later bestowed on the rich dessert wine - Commandaria, still made from vines in the Limassol foothills.
The Knights were first granted land here in 1210 by the Lusignans and the castle that grew up became their headquarters after the Crusaders' final loss of the Holy Land. Today's 3-storey, keep-style structure stands among the ruins of a much larger castle, from the coat of arms of the Grand Master Louis de Magnac
Limassol is the town situated in the southern part of Cyprus. Is the second biggest town of the country and the important industrial, maritime and tourist area. It's well know from its port, which is the biggest one in Mediterranean transit.
What I like the most in this town is a castle, sort of the old town and the beach, which is not very nice and sandy, and doesn't invite to sun-batheing, but it's perfect for the long and cooling walks :)
However if you like shopping and clubbing, you won't be bored as well, as Limassol has very rich night life, even after the tourist season.
Take a look at my pictures from Limassol among my travelogues: no. 1 and no. 2 :-)
Limasol is one of the main ports in Cyprus. Its a large sprawling place with big hotels behind the coast - not my ideal holiday place but its a handy departure point for a 3 day mini cruises to Egypt and Israel.
Just outside Limasol there is wonderful scenery along the coastline and interesting archaelogical sights to explore - much more worthwhile in my opinion than Limasol itself. Paphos is less than an hour away and is a much more picturesque place to stay.
