History is right on your doorstep in Limassol! In Limassol itself, you can explore the Lusignan Castle (that's 13th century to you and me), and then wander the winding streets of the old Turkish quarter. If you just want to wander along the seafront, the area around the old harbour (rather than the commercial port you will probably arrive at) is a nice spot for lunch.

For a day trip beyond the town, it's probably most economic to recruit two fellow passengers and hire a car amongst the four of you. It's a short drive to explore the Sanctuary of Apollo just west of the ancient city of Kurion, or the Roman baths and temples at Kurion. If you want to see something unique to Cyprus, drive into the Troodos Montains to explore the frescoes of the wonderful painted churches, and get away from the heat of the coast for the day. (There is an informative blog about the churches at www.cyprusvista.com.)

For your Limassol car hire, I suggest you contact http://www.cyprus-car.com in advance and let them know you'd like to hire your car at the port in Limassol, and I'm sure they'll be more than happy to help. You can pay before you leave the UK and save a lot of hassle on arrival. Just remember to bring your driving licenses with you!

http://www.cyprusguidebook.info/limasol/limasol.html. There are public buses that go to Kourion, about 20 miles away, for the amphitheatre, but you will have to watch the timetable, they may be few and far between going back. KEMEK bus terminal is North of the castle, at Enoseos and Eirinis Street, for timetable, call: 25 363 241. There are also shared taxis, at 49 Spyrou Araouzou Street (Kypros Company, tel. (05) 363 979) or at 21 Thessaloniki Street (Karydas, Kyriakos Company, tel. (05) 362 061).

Travel Tips for Limassol

the castle of Lemesos

by Aggeliki

The medieval castle is one of the nine castles of Cyprus. It was built by the Byzantines around 1000 AD. Around the same period, a chapel was also built there. Richard the Lionheart is supposed to have married his fiancée Princess Berengaria of Navarre on this site after her ship was grounded nearby in 1191 as she accompanied him to the Third Crusade, on his way to Holy Land. The Castle was used as a prison, between 1790-1940
The medieval castle of Limassol now is a museum. The collection that the museum provides covers the era of 400 - 1870 A.D. A visitor can see numerous exhibits: cannons, wood carvings of the 17th and 18th century, paintings and tombstones, statues, suits of armor, coins, terracotta, metalware and pottery, glass and marble articrafts.

please don't tell your friends

by MrBill about Famagusta Nautical Club

I have hesitated to add this tip at all. Who wants to share a nice, cozy restaurant along the beach that no one will notice from the outside with a bunch of tourists? It can only ruin the place in the long run. Oh well, I will tell you, but don't tell anyone else, okay?

So after my disasterous experience with the Waves restaurant down the street, we tried this very unassuming restaurant about 100 meters east along the sea front road. From outside, it is nothing special, but that belies what is out behind.

Essentially you sit under the big, mature trees along the beach. During the day it is shady, and at night you sit under strings of lights hanging from the tree branches. Wild cats & kittens patrol ceaselessly between the tables hoping for a quick snack of fish or a dropped piece of shashlik. But, an unprotected toe will do just as well, so be careful. On a hot day or after a hot day, I like to order a nice cold beer first. They serve Carlsberg or KEO in 0.63 liter bottles.

There are only a few things I would order from the menu. Either the meat meze or the fish meze, but I prefer the meat meze. Or the shashlik barbeque pork or chicken. They serve fish, but there are other fish restaurants in Limassol. I prefer to order a fish, rather than the fish meze. With the fish meze you get a lot of stuff you might not normally order. It is a way for them to lower the cost.

In my humble opinion, the barbeque is the best, and I have eaten there dozens of times. It is cooked piping hot and served fresh. I like the chicken and pork better than their lamb. Beforehand you can order a nice mixed, village salad, and maybe some tsaksiki with pita bread as a snack. Washed down with a bottle of dry, crisp, chilled Cypriot white wine and a bottle of water. Ask for the wine on ice so it is the right temperature. Wine gets warm very quickly even at night.

The portions are large enough to fill a Nebraskan farmboy, so easy when ordering. They are pretty good about bringing more food if you need it. Everything in Cyprus is served with french fries and the fish and grill at Famagusta is no exception.

Limassol, the second largest city

by Aggeliki

Limassol is the second-largest city of Cyprus, the biggest municipality of the island. The city is located on Akrotiri Bay, on the island's southern coast and it is the capital of Limassol District.
It is the biggest port in the Mediterranean transit trade. Limassol has since then become one of the most important tourism, trade and service-providing centre in the area. Limassol is renowned for its long cultural tradition. A wide spectrum of activities and a great number of museums and archaeological sites are available to the interested visitor.
Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, so during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town). Limassol's tourist strip now runs east along the coast as far as Amathus. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri Sovereign Base Area of the United Kingdom.
Limassol also attracts a wide range of tourists mostly during the summer season to be accommodated in its several luxurious hotels and apartments.

Back to Paphos - Cyprus

by Sanneke

Come and visit Cyprus! Unlikely to what most of you guys seem to think, it's not dangerous here because of the war in Israel! There are beautifull beaches in Ayia Napa (second Ibiza), nice archeological sites in Paphos, and Nicosia, the capital, is a super-interesting city to visit!
