    Limassol, Limassol District, Cyprus
    Limassol is a beautiful place, full of life and of welcoming people - like all of Cyprus. Even if the beach is not made of sand, but of pebbles, that will not take away anything from the beauty of the Mediteranean Sea. I've never seen a sea so clean! I saw it's bottom from the window of the airplane. In order to move around freely, rent a car - but be careful cypriots drive like english people - on the wrong side of the God damn road! Ask a local's help to choose a rent-a-car firm over another - they'll be glad to help, especially if you try to learn a word or two in their native tongue. Cypriots - as greeks - will be more than delighted to let you practice your awfull language knowledge on them. The almost bloom if you ask them of their culture and/or history. Bring summer clothes and a warmer jacket. Even if a local tells you it's cold don't bother - for cypriots 25 degrees Celsius is considered to be "cold". Always check your own meteo forecast. Hotels have lots of services to offer and the prices are not as steep as they could be. Romania is much more expensive! With about 2000 euros you and 2 friends can have a wonderfull week long stay in Cyprus. As for attractions, you won't have time to see them all in just a week: the castle of Kourion, the temple of Apollo, The birth place of Afrodite are just a few places to go visit, the ones I've seen, and only in Lemessos area! Have fun, enjoy the people, enjoy the food and your stay in Cyprus - you'll come back with beautiful memories and gorgeous pictures. For sure!

    Limassol, Limassol District, Cyprus
    Beautiful tropical Island. Went here for my honeymoon and enjoyed the beaches, restraunts and nightlife. Also cheap hotels so get a 5 star hotel for the price of a 2-3 star over here in the USA

    Limassol, Limassol District, Cyprus
    Limassol (Lemasus) is a great place to be in March. Its 2-3 hours away from the capital Nicosia (Lefkosia). If not based in Limassol, an efficient way to get there is by shared taxi, where you pay -currently- EUR6-11 for a 2 hour trip from Nicosia. This is much faster than the bus and much cheaper than a taxi. The old city quarters have a number of museums to visit as well little cafe/restaurants where you can try local food and bev. An old mosque dating back to the 16th century is a interesting sight since this city is Greek rather than Turkish Cypriot. The attractions are not always close and a one hour walk from one place (such as city centre) to another (such as the zoo or large archeological museum) could be neccesary. Cypriots live the good life...museums and related sites may be closed for the day after 15:30!
