Cyprus' second-largest city, Limassol's main attraction is Limassol Castle and its medieval museum. Other sights include the public gardens, a small zoo and an archaeological museum. It also has a busy music scene, with everything from bouzouki taverns to jazz. There are several points of interest nearby, and the coastal region to the east is scenic. Many fine hotels dot the coast between Limassol and Amathus, to the east. Nearby are the 13th-century Kolossi Castle (9 mi/14 km west of Limassol), the beach at Dhassoudi, the Ayios Georgios Convent and the Greco-Roman archaeological site of Curium, where plays and concerts are performed every summer in the ancient theater. Regional vineyards and wineries abound (there's a two-week wine festival in September), and you can use Limassol as a base to visit Troodos mountain villages. 40 mi/65 km southwest of Nicosia.
