Full-day Limassol, Omodos Village and Winery Tour
THIS TOUR IS AVAILABLE FROM 07.01.2023
Legends of kings and kingdoms, and the origins of the island’s wine making industry characterize the Lemesos (Limassol) region, which embodies both the ancient and the modern. Known as the region of wine, celebrations and ancient realms, Lemesos consists of its main city - which sits between two important archaeological sites; the ancient city-kingdom of Amathus to the east, and the ancient city-kingdom of Kourion to the west - along with rural areas and charming mountainous villages, where old traditions and crafts are still practised. Located in the Lemesos (Limassol) district, the pretty, wine producing village of Omodos sits at an altitude of 800 meters on the Troodos mountain range, in the beautiful area of ‘Krassohoria’, just 42 km from Lemesos town. Omodos is one of the most traditional and charming villages on the island. Famous for its wine, Zivania spirit, handmade narrow-knit lacing and ‘arkatena’ bread, its quaint environs are perfect for agrotourism. Despite its small size, Omodos has many interesting sights. Ktima Gerolemo winery is located about 1 kilometer north of the village of Omodos at an altitude of 900 meters, in the heart of the wine producing area. Visitors will be guided through a modern family winery and get introduced to the principles of organic cultivation of the vine and the “secrets” of wine. Visitors are also offered wine tasting sessions and snacks while enjoying spectacular views of the valley and the vineyards.
