The Annual Limassol Carnival in February
The Limassol ("Lemesos" in Greek) municipality organizes the annual carnival in the city. The festivities last alltogether more than a week.
The carnival week consists of various exhibitions (art), singing performances, dancing and ends in the main parade with costumes.
We were not aware of the carnival and just happened to be out that night (main parade) - we were lucky!
The website (link below) shows an example; there is the programme of the past 2008 carnival.
This is really a town of many variances. Arabs and Europeans mingle here - peacefully.
I guess this town has grown to be a very big city since I was there in 1987 - my last time to Limassol.
I think this city can offer you quite a lot, from good restaurants, good nightlife, good hotels (exclusive ones) and so on...
Check it out if you dare.
I quietly say hello to old fellas!
"Afrodites Bay and Afrodites Bath"
I was lucky to be brought to Afrodites Bay and Afrodites Bath.
Nice, and I did swim around the cliff. Cyprus is the island of Venus - definitely.
Afrodite bath is on the way to Paphos and you have to walk up a hill. I think there was a film from this place ages ago...
Guess what !!! I dived from that cliff!!!
One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
The bluest sea I have ever seen.
THE Limassol Page
Bigest metro - city area on the island. Many things to do and many places to go to but have in mind that since is big town places are not gathered up in one location but rather spread allover the city..
