Travel through the fertile foothills where most of the country's vineyards and the orchards of the Phassouri citrus groves are. You’ll arrive at the ancient ruins of the city of Kourion, an impressive Greco-Roman site where you can see remaining pavement mosaics. Nearby is the Greco-Roman theater built in the 2nd century BC. Still used today for many performances, including ancient dramas, perched high on a cliff, this beautiful and unspoiled location offers spectacular views of the ruins and the sapphire sea below.
You’ll visit the Kolossi Castle, a well-preserved stronghold standing three stories tall that was built by the Crusaders in the 13th century. Your guide will share with you how the castle served as both the Grand Commander of the Knights of St. John's Order of Jerusalem, as well as the Knights Templar.
Arriving back in Limassol, enjoy free time for shopping before returning to the pier. The wide array of shops that line the streets carry a variety of both international and local merchandise including jewelry, leather goods, clothing and local artifacts.
