The city of Limassol on the island of Cyprus is located south of the island’s capital of Nicosia. It is the largest beach resort on the island, and many people come here to enjoy extended vacations. The second largest city in Cyprus, you can enjoy staying at one of its many hotels, resorts, or self-catering apartments. The city is ten miles long and the Troodos Mountains act as a beautiful backdrop to this historically rich city.
Limassol is the primary city for the island’s wine-making industry and it is bustling with shopping opportunities and a holiday feel. It has what is considered the best nightlife on the island and it is the home of Cyprus’ annual Wine Festival every September. The wineries here offer visitors free samples of their product for ten days, namely the ten-day pre-Lenten Carnival. There is also a drama festival held at Kourion just outside the city every year as well.
