To the east of Limassol lies the ancient kingdom of Amathus, while to the west lies Ancient Kourion with its breath-taking Greco-Roman amphitheatre perched on a cliff-top. Or for something more recent, explore Limassol’s medieval Byzantine castle where Richard the Lionheart is said to have got married.
2. Sample the local flavours
Standing at the crossroads of three continents, Cyprus has a rich and diverse culinary heritage. Limassol Marina offers a variety of dining options. Some of the finest food you’ll eat here, however, is the traditional Cypriot cuisine. And there’s no better place to enjoy its fresh flavours than in the tavernas of Limassol.
