3. What to wear in December

You will mostly use light winter clothes. It is also recommended to bring jeans, pullovers, and a warm jacket for the night time. No need to bring your heavy coat. Also, a couple of T-shirts and short for the sunny days. It does not rain too much in Limassol however you will need an umbrella for those few rainy days. The rain does not last for long so your would probably wont stay at your hotel the whole day. Sunglasses are always handy. Below are a few photos I have taken during December so that you can get a better idea of the weather and what most people wear.
