Sprawling below the Troodos Mountains , the modern resort of Limassol has become a destination for those who are looking to unwind in the clubs and bars that crowd the port. It's a boisterous place that's both Cyprus ' main commercial hub and the second biggest resort on the island.
Limassol's charms are almost exclusively hedonistic, but Limassol has lost the Cypriot partying crown to Ayia Napa and
Paphos (Pafos), but the city still knows how to have a good time.
Despite its rich past; Limassol has little of the classical heritage that survives in other Cypriot cities. Aside form the castle, the bazaar and a couple of museums there isn't all that much to see. However, visitors to Limassol usually have a much livelier agenda. Limassol is well-placed to access some of the island's best beaches, although those nearest to the city aren't the most salubrious. Overlooking the city the Troodos Mountains are a haven of tranquillity that provide welcome respite form the relative bustle below (as well as a number of interesting days out). Limassol is one of the busiest ferry ports in Cyprus
Today, Limassol is one of the most important tourism, trade and service-providing centre in the area. The city is also renowned for its long cultural tradition. Visitors can enjoy a wide spectrum of activities and a great number of museums and archaeological sites. A unique combination of ancient Greek, Byzantine, Frankish, Roman and other modern influences is observed.
The enhancement of Troodos’ southern slopes along with the picturesque traditional wine producing villages and the idyllic mountain resorts such as Pitsylia area complete the activities-package Limassol can offer to locals and visitors.
