The old town of Limassol is the heart of the city with its narrow streets radiating out from the old fishing harbour. The medieval Limassol castle was the site of a royal wedding in the Middle Ages between Richard the Lionheart, King of England, and Berengaria of Navarre. It now houses the Cyprus Medieval Museum.

The town has grown in recent years and now covers a 15 kilometres coastline lined with hotels and apartment blocks, interspersed with eucalyptus groves and linked by a promenade popular with walkers or joggers.

The city’s inhabitants are renowned for their love of fun so not surprisingly the city’s nightlife is varied. All sorts of tavernas, discos and clubs are open all the year round, while beach bars along the coastal walkway add to the choice. Visitors join in the Bacchian excesses at the Wine Festival in September, or have fun at the Carnival with its fancy dress chariot parade and parties during Carnival in February. In summer concerts are held under the stars in the Greco-Roman theatre of Kourion.
