VISIT LIMASSOL,"THE TOWN THAT NEVER SLEEPS", DURING YOUR MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE HOLIDAY.

A fascinating intersection of cultural influences have shaped Limassol, a vibrant city located in the shadow of the Troodos mountains, on Akrotiri Bay on the southern coast of Cyprus. As one of the busiest ports of the Mediterranean, the city is a robust commercial centre for tourism and trade, but remnants of Limassol’s intriguing history practically whisper tales of bygone eras. Known as “the town that never sleeps”, quaint narrow streets are filled with Limassol’s lively character and peppered with tavernas, shops and bars, where you can find fresh local produce, famous wines and fine handmade goods. Visit museums and archaeological sites like Kolossi Castle, a former Crusader stronghold, the Grand Mosque in the old Turkish quarter, and the Archaeological Museum. Venture to the old port to explore the medieval Limassol Castle, built by the Byzantines around 1000 AD, and allegedly where Richard the Lionheart married his queen during the Third Crusade.
