Limassol ©
The second largest city in Cyprus, Limassol attracts locals and tourists alike with its sun and sea.
Get some historical perspective at Limassol Castle and Amathus. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and The Sanctuary Of Apollo. When in Limassol, make a side trip to see Panagia tou Moutoulla in Moutoullas, approximately 1 hour away. There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Kolossi Castle, contemplate the long history of Kourion, see the interesting displays at Cyprus Medical Museum, and take in the waterfront at Promenade.

To find reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Limassol trip itinerary planner.

Valletta, Malta to Limassol is an approximately 7-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of ferry, bus, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Valletta to Limassol. In December, daytime highs in Limassol are 21°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Paphos.
