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

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

The site was of great historic interest but clearly need a lot more work to make it a proper tourist attraction. The signage on the site was virtually non-existent except for the entrance. Also there were no refreshment facilities

Located just outside the city of Limassol this site gives the chance for a stroll around the remains of one of the most significant ancient city kingdoms of Cyprus which dates back to 1100B.C. If you happen to be around head down to the area and catch a glimpse of the ruins of the Temple of Aphrodite and tombs. They... More

Sufficient to see from the road unless you're really into this sort of thing. Easy to get to though.

This is an area outside Limassol travelling on the coastal road towards Lanarka. These ruins are set back from the road and a short walk is needed to actually get to see them properly.

You need a lot of imagination when you visit the site. Situated by the main road so lots of road noise. They are just ruins and not well preserved ones but worth a visit.
