Details:

Leaving Paphos our first stop is Anogyra, the only village in Cyprus where the sweet Pasteli is still produced from the many surrounding Carob trees, and visit the museum which traces the tradition and history of its making. A short walk follows to view the ruins of the Holy Cross Monastery.

Heading towards Limassol we visit Kourion (Curium), a large archaeological site, to view the rich mosaics and impressive amphitheater. We continue on and pass by the village of Kolossi to see the castle.

We reach Limassol and see the old fort situated in the heart of the old town. From there we walk to the old fruit and herb market where all kinds of fresh local products and delicacies are displayed.

Free time follows for lunch, shopping, and exploring the old quarter. Returning to Paphos, we pass from Diamond Centre, the world of diamonds where you can see jewelry with diamonds, other precious and semi-precious stones.

Explore More About Limassol:

Limassol (also known as Lemesos) is a shoreline city that sweeps along a broad stretch of beach. This is the cosmopolitan hub of Cyprus, effortlessly blending sophisticated modernization with its ancient past.

Hip restaurants and cafés cluster around the restored old town center, while on the seafront, the old port area neighbors a snazzy, contemporary marina that has become another popular eating-out hub.

Perfectly placed to explore the beaches of the Akrotiri Peninsula, as well as the drop-dead gorgeous mountain villages that tumble down the lower slopes of the Mandaria region and snuggle within the Troodos Massif (Troodos Mountains) and Ancient Kourion (Cyprus' number one archaeological site), Limassol is a great base for travelers who want to temper the sandy beach-bum fun with swags of culture.

Ancient Kourion

One of Cyprus' most spectacular archaeological sites, the ancient city-kingdom of Kourion (sometimes spelled Curium) rates towards the top on most visitors' things to do itineraries.

Kourion has been settled since the Neolithic age, though the grand monuments on show all date from its Greco-Roman period.

The small theater (with seating for 3,500 spectators) was built in the 2nd century and then extended by the Romans. It has been completely reconstructed, having been destroyed by an earthquake in the 4th century. The views over the jagged coastal cliffs and out to the Mediterranean Sea are superb from here.
