When most of us think of Cyprus, we’ve either heard of, or experienced, the wild parties of Ayia Napa on the southeast coast (for the record, we’ve only heard the stories). Fortunately, if you prefer a more cultural experience – otherwise known as the real Cyprus – there is a whole island of treasures awaiting you in the Mediterranean.
If there’s a town that knows the true meaning of transformation, it simply has to be Limassol. One of the most cosmopolitan districts in Cyprus, the sprawling cityscape is famed for its thriving cultural scene and dynamic modern life. Buzzing cafés complement candlelit bistros, modern architecture and old colonial mansions vie for attention, while small galleries are tucked away near larger art centres.
