    A listed UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient city of Curium was once a thriving settlement found on the south-western coast of Cyprus near the modern day city of Limassol.
    These ruins, dating back to before the Roman period, have been wonderfully preserved and are a fantastic place to visit for a day out. There is everything on exhibit, from the beautiful amphitheatre and residential houses, to the public baths and the stadium used for running events. The area is littered with beautiful mosaics depicting the particular area they are in. For example, the House of Achilles has several mosaics showing the history of the hero Achilles while the baths area has several aquatic themed mosaics.
    The site is open 7 days per week, all year round from 08:15 am to 17:15 pm and the entry is a mere 4.5 Euros. The area is wheelchair accessible and there is also a Visitor’s Centre where souvenirs and refreshments can be purchased from; free wi-fi is also available.
