Daily excursions to Troodos and the Limassol mountain region for only €3!

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

The Limassol mountain villages and the Troodos Mountains are among the countryside’s greatest advantages. Their short distance from the city allows for single-day mountain retreats, and daily excursions have been set up for this purpose, at the price of just €3 per passenger.

The route of the 64 bus, which sets off from the Germasogeia tourist area (Pizza Hut bus stop) at 9.15AM, and ends up at the Troodos Botanical Garden, was established by the Troodos Tourism Development and Promotion Company, with the aim of facilitating travel to and from the mountains. The return ticket per passenger is €3, with discounts for special ticket holders (senior citizens, students).

The 64 bus (easily distinguished by the depictions of the Troodos forest which adorn its exterior) passes through Leontiou Street at 9.30AM (Old Hospital), and follows a route through the communities of Alassa, Monagri, Doros, Lania, Trimiklini, Moniatis, Pera Pedi, Mantria, Kato Platres and Platres, where it ends up at 10:45. Stops include the Sparti Rope Park, at the center of the village, and Psilo Dentro, which is the starting point of the Caledonia and Pouziaris trails.

At 11.15, the bus arrives at Troodos Square, and carries on to the Botanical Garden, where it stops for 1 hour for those who wish to tour the site. Upon its return to Troodos Square, it remains there until 4.15 (summer season: 1/5 – 30/9) or 3.15 (winter season 1/10 – 10/4), when it begins the same route for its return.

Passengers can opt to stop at any of the points on the route, and re-board the same bus back to Limassol on its return route.

This is a great option for those seeking an outing into the green areas of Troodos, as it avoids traffic and is also environmentally-friendly. Cyclists can also transport their bikes on the bus, as long as the storage spaces are not full.
