collageTravel Limassol
by HAMZA

Limassol, situated in the south of Cyprus, is the country's main industrial and maritime area and also the second biggest town. Most tourists only pass by on their way to the more historic sites like Akrotiri or the Troodos Mountains, but there is actually a lot to see in Limassol besides a busy industrial centre. Places of interest include the Berengaria Castle, the place where Richard the Lionheart married Berengaria, Kolossi Castle, the ancient city of Kourion and its still functioning theatre, Amathus and many other archaeological spots scattered around the city. If it is night life you are looking for, check out Yermasogea, the tourist area of Limassol, where both locals and tourists meet in the vibrant clubs. You can also visit the Lady's Mile Beach, a long partly sandy beach with several beach-side fish restaurants and the Governor's Beach with a beautiful white stone coast to the west. The old city centre is a place to go too – a walk will lead the visitor to a vibrant community full of shop owners, crafts people, artists of all disciplines and businessmen. Since the city is relatively untouched by mainstream tourism, it has been able to maintain the traditions of Cypriote life: restaurants, wine cellars and promenades. Nevertheless, traditional old boutiques and dark inns, where the Cypriots drink their famous sour drink are rapidly changing into modern shopping centres and restaurants. The city is known for its famous carnival, its wine festival and the Cyprus Rally that takes place every autumn.
