Was probably a wonderful peaceful place to be at one time and it cannot be faulted for attempts to modernise. The artwork and sculptures on the seafront make for a pleasant environment. The pedestrianised promenade is to be commended but it is all let down badly by inconsiderate and dangerous drivers. Noisy motorbikes and cars racing along the coast road at night and drivers not stopping at red lights. Using a mobile phone to speak or text whilst driving appears to be obligatory. The villages outside Limassol are pleasant but not immune from desperately bad drivers. By and large however a pleasant place to be if you can find traditional Cypriot areas or places to eat. A traditional Cypriot eatery is becoming a rareity, more is the pity as a consequence the place is losing it's appeal.

Beware if you are in Cyprus and need medical treatment. The hospitals are archaic and unless you have the correct papers you will only recieve emergency treatment no matter whether you are EU or not. Cyprus doctors are generally excellent but if you are unfortunate enough to be admitted to a hospital, the nursing staff do not feed, or assist to dress etc. In some cases you are asked to provide the basics like bandages which you need to purchase from an outside pharmacy.Unless you have someone staying at the hospital with you, expect little or no bedside manners and communication will be minimal unless you have a grasp of the language.
