Docked here on a Sunday, virtually everything closed, thought it was going to be a bit grim, then we discovered the seafront and Prom with cafes and bars. Really pleasant day there
No tourist office, Hop on/off buses just across the road from the dock but the Hop on/off buses, train only let you hop off for a couple of minutes to take a photo. Walked thro the town, lots of high end fashion both men and women but nothing special.
Again no tourist information re port etc, we paid for ships shuttle to take us into town, we were dropped outside with no directions on where to go. Managed to find a coffee house with good internet. However the main thing is the overwhelming smell of cat wee everywhere in Limassol
Not good, security all through the port even though we were checked getting off the ship, Haifa security checked us as well causing queues. There was no tourist information open at the port. You had to run the gauntlet of taxi drivers to get out of the port. Onboard tours available to Dead Sea, Nazareth, Jerusalem etc but they were 8 hrs or so and were very pricey
Really nice, did hop on/off bus circuit and then walked from the new town to harbour and old town, then back to ship. We found it difficult to get a coffee in Rhodes, outside cafes were lacking in staff. Very enjoyable day, but no tourist office to be seen...out of season?
No ship excursion, but the city is charming and easily walkable. Buses are frequent and it's easy to get to PortoFino by train
