Getting Around in Limassol
As it is a relatively small city and simple to navigate, Limassol is an easy place to get around. There are four main roads that run almost parallel to each other, and they cross the city from west to east. Starting in the south part of the city and moving north, the first street we come to is the avenue running parallel to the beach. Starting at the small roundout of Limassol’s old port, it runs outside of Limassol, always following the coastline. It goes by various names depending on the section of the road: Spyrou Araouzou, Christodoulou Hadjipavlou, and Octovriou 28. Next we have the main Limassol road called Makarios III Avenue, which runs almost through the center of the city. Moving north we find the relatively new Spyros Kyprianou Avenue, otherwise known as Makedonias Avenue, which again crosses the city from west to east.
And finally we have the highway, which, with its newly completed bridges, allows traffic going back and forth between Paphos and Nicosia to bypass six roundabouts.
There are never huge traffic jams in Limassol, especially since the introduction of the highway bridges, which have reduced bottlenecks to a minimum.
If you don’t have a personal car to travel around Limassol, a very good taxi system exists and a taxi can be found almost instantly. A moderate bus service with busses crossing the town from one end to the other runs from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm.
