My husband and myself visited Amathus in November 2016 after being told about it by our Thomson rep. We caught a bus from our hotel and when we got to the site where we're only 2 other visitors. There is plenty of information at the entrance and it was interesting walking around the site. Some of the area is roped... More

We visited with a school group and found it most interesting. A few panels with information would improve it. Wonderful view around.

This requires an above average physical abilities to hike a steep dirt road to the top of the hill to reach the archaeological site. Once you are on top you will be able to see the entire Limasol coast line and indeed walk around the site of an ancient ruins that dates back few thousands years.

As our hotel The Poseidonia Beach hotel is near to the ruins and when at the Limonia Bay my husband always took a run a night when I was getting ready for dinner. However the heat was still intense and he was surprised to find a fee to enter. However they are still working on the site but he came... More

Just outside Limassol and with views to the sea the site is adjacent to the coast road and visible from it, if passing at night it is all lit up and it is this that drew us to visit as quiet magical. Unlike Kourion it is low lying so no climb. The excavations seem to be on going - but... More

We were staying in the nearby Atlantica Bay hotel so this was a pleasant 30 minute stroll on the beach front path. The main site costs €2,50 to enter. There is little information available aside from a board at the entrance. Our hotel rep had some additional information but I would recommend having a read online for further context on... More

On our trip in Cyprus the first stop was this ancient city outside Limassol. It's not the biggest ruins, but well preserved. You got a nice view over the city. Unfortunately it's no information at the site, only at the entrance you can find it. But are are you intrastate in Ancient Greek history. The place is well worth a... More
