About Limassol

History mixed with a little hedonism is the holiday mixture which makes Cyprus so popular and, sat about halfway along the south coast, Limassol is the ideal base for cruise visitors to enjoy what the country has to offer.

Across the island, there is plenty of rugged coastline and mountain scenery to explore and enjoy along with a variety of archaeological sites. Limassol is a working town as well as a holiday resort but it has been attractively landscaped and its centre is easily walkable. Make sure you visit the 12th century fort where Richard the Lionheart married Berengaria and which now houses an excellent medieval museum.

Cyprus became an independent republic in 1960. But, following the 1974 Turkish invasion and the subsequent division of Cyprus, the Greek Cypriots had to create a brand new tourist industry in its part of the island. The most popular resorts are Ayia Napa and Paphos, both renowned for safe, sandy beaches.
