About Limassol

Limassol by night


The city of Limassol (Lemesos) is the second largest city of Cyprus with a population of around 200,000 people. It is geographically situated on the southern coast of the island of Cyprus. The skyline of Limassol (Lemesos) has left behind very little evidence of its historical past and given way instead to a modern, cosmopolitan appearance. However, the protected ancient monuments of the city hand over a rich trail of artefacts and mythical stories. Limassol Castle, The Amathus Ruins and the Mosque of Djami Kebir are a few of the beautiful sights worth visiting (don't forget the camera!).

The port of the city is the largest in the Mediterranean transit trade and is considered to be an excellent base for those companies doing business with the Middle East, North Africa or Eastern Europe. Limassol’s infrastructure is constantly upgraded from all aspects (way of living, education, public construction projects, etc) with the most distinct project of this sort being the Limassol Marina, an exclusive waterfront development combining elegant residences and a full service marina, with its own shopping and dining area in the heart of Limassol.

 The city of Limassol is conveniently located between both airports; 77km’s away from Larnaca International Airport and 67km’s away from Paphos International Airport. Limassol serves as a major tourist destination; it is a vibrant city, full of exciting things to see and do.
