Few words about Limassol

The city of Limassol, also known as Lemesos, is the second largest town in Cyprus. It is the island’s primary port, a major tourist destination, and the epicentre of its wine production. Two of the most impressive archaeological sites in Cyprus are located in Limassol. Built on cliff tops, the ancient cities of Amathous and Kourion are located to the east and west of the city, respectively, with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea. The world’s largest stone vase, unearthed at Amathous and now housed in the Louvre Museum in Paris, is just one of the artefacts from these ancient sites that have made their way to international museums. The Troodos Mountains’ southern slopes provide a magnificent background for the city.
