1. The beauty of both the Marina and the Old Port came as a huge positive surprise to us. As if in Florida or California!
2. It is pleasant to walk along the beautifully designed, wooded, and well-kept coastal promenade (Molos), which stretches between the Old Port and the zoo.
3. The magnificent Governor's Beach with the White Rocks (located outside the town, 21 kilometers)
4. It was funny that when we explored the city, we heard more Russian speakers than Greek speakers.
5. In the cozy square called Saripolou there are several cheap and authentic restaurants with extensive terraces. Highly recommended, especially the simple cookshop likes!
6. We saw a lot of construction, so it appears that there is a lot of money here to create modern residential and office buildings.
7. Limassol Castle is not an unforgettable experience, but the view from the top is good enough for taking nice pictures.
1. The sand of the city beaches is uncared-for and ugly in color. The urban beaches of Paphos (and especially Kato Paphos) are a lot nicer.
2. The Old Town has huge tourism potential, but it is neglected. Too bad.
3. Basically there are no high-value classic tourist attractions. The castle (Limassol Castle) and Agia Napa Cathedral offer a limited tourist experience.
4. The coastal area between the Marina and the New Port does not deserve tourist attention. Ugly.
5. We haven’t even seen handsome locals in the economic capital of Cyprus. The Russian girls - that's another pair of shoes.
