Legends of kings and kingdoms, the origins of the island’s winemaking industry, characterize the Limassol region, embodying both the ancient and the modern.
As the region of wine, celebrations, and ancient realms, Limassol sits between two important archaeological sites. The ancient city-kingdom of Amathus to the east, and the ancient city-kingdom of Kourion to the west along with rural areas and charming mountainous villages.
Limassol is the second-largest city of Cyprus, the home of the island’s main port, and a bustling holiday resort. Its marina and impressive archaeological monuments to the vast 15 km coastal strip with restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and entertainment establishments.
The region then trails up the southern slopes of the Troodos mountains, with vineyards forming a pleasant green backdrop to the city. The hillside villages, known as the ‘Krassochoria’ (or wine villages), keep their old traditions alive, producing the island’s best wines even today. As the oldest named wine in the world – the sweet dessert wine of Commandaria.
