Travel (airport coach,local bus, taxis)
Limassol can be easily reached from both airports in Cyprus: Paphos (PFO) and Larnaca (LCA). The duration of the trip from the two airports to Limassol is about 45-50 minutes, and a regular coach service is available, at the cost of €9 per person including VAT and luggage (one way). Taxis can also be hired outside the airports (50-60 Euros per ride).
From the Larnaka airport to the Poseidonia hotel: Get off the coach at the first stop in Limassol: “Tourist Area, opposite the Grand Resort (see Google map: Amathountos 1, B1, Pareklisia, Limassol”). Then you can take the number 30 local bus which runs very frequently between 6am-11pm (no buses between 11pm-6am). The number 30 bus timetable is here. From the coach stop to the hotel it should be around 10 minutes with the number 30 bus.
From the Paphos airport to the Poseidonia hotel: Get off the coach at the “St George Havouzas” station (Central Coach Station). Also, these Frequently Asked Questions answered by the coach company are very useful.
From “St George Havouzas” it is quite difficult unfortunately to reach the Poseidonia hotel with local buses. The easiest way to reach the hotel is by taxi (cost around 12-15 euros). For this local taxi ride you can use the taxi company which collaborates with the Cyprus University of Technology by texting 00357 96 46 46 46 upon departure from the airport with the following information::
- Your name:
- Time of arrival in Limassol: (45 minutes after your departure from Larnaca/Paphos airport)
- Destination (Poseidonia hotel or other)
From the Poseidonia hotel to the Cyprus University of Technology: You need to get the number 30 local bus which runs very frequently between 6am-11pm (no buses between 11pm-6am). You can get off at the bus stop “Ayia Napa Church”. The university buildings where the events will be held are about 5 minutes on foot from this bus stop.
Total duration of trip: about 25 minutes. (The number 30 bus timetable is here.)
