Really nice walk from some of the local hotels. Atmospheric ruins, plenty to see and great views. Gives you a real sense of how people lived here.The route to the top is not suitable for buggies or wheel chairs. Would also recommend this as an early morning or late afternoon walk as it can be very hot on site and... More

When Amathus was alive most the today's civilised nations were not existent. Amathus was a busy city with port in the ancient times. It was associated also with Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, as her son sought refuge in Amathus when Cleopatra got married with Julius Caesar. However, he did not live for long as Julius and Cleopatra sent the mighty... More

We did not go through the gates where you pay as it was just a little to see. Instead we walked up the hill on the left side of the entrance and it was really beautiful and relaxing. lovely views and that section is free. Take plenty of water and snacks though as you may get thirsty or hungry. you... More

Not to be seen on the hottest of days but worth a visit. You can envisage the days of the original occupants and only gape in awe Spectacular views.

The fee isn't much, but apart from the information boards opposite the ticket office, there are no guides or signs or maps showing what's what. Probably the fee goes into maintaining the pathways with thorns and nasty little stones that get stuck to the soles of your shoes <insert sarcastic eye-rolling>. The columns reminded me of the Temple of Artemis... More

The ruins are hidden away on top of a small mountain directly at the see. From the seafront one does not expect much and is likely to just drive by. But do not do this mistake. Take your time and walk up the mountain and you will not be let down. There are many sights on the way up and... More

Despite this being described in other reviews as small, there is really a lot to see if you look carefully. The fee is still reasonable - 2.5 euros. There is an outline of the history at the entrance. The best place to start is a map at he seaward end of the main area. This shows the layout of the... More

To be honest I lived in Limassol for about 30 years and I never visited this site. There have been improvements, such as signs with descriptions of how the ancient city used to be and its history, but you still need a lot of imagination as all you see is some broken columns scattered around the site. If you are... More

Its a small site which is good enough if you are passing by or for a short stop only. so if you are staying in one of the hotels in Limassol, than why not to visit it, otherwise, its not worth a long journey. We captured some nice pictures in this site but clearly it needs lot of work to... More

This is an archeological side , around 10km East of Limassol center , across the road that runs along the beach. If you are staying in one of the hotels in the area (Four Seasons , Amathus beach, Mediterranean beach..) you can actually walk there from your hotel along the sea promenade. There is a clear sign where you have... More
