Optional Field Trips

Limassol – new marina, town centre and waterfront regeneration, fringe belts.

6 July 2019, Saturday

The aim for the Limassol city tour is to give an impression of the urban fabric throughout its neighborhoods. Therefore, we have divided the city into different clusters, one for each category. The whole experience will be accompanied by a brief historical narration.

During the tour, we will visit a high-income as well as a low-income residential area. We will pass by the coastline where we will see the former tourist area and the newly integrated infrastructures in the district. We will also visit a village which has been territorially consolidated within the main urban fabric of Limassol, a functional contemporary industrial zone, as well as an abandoned one. We will also pass through an area which has been developed to host the people left displaced and homeless after the war of 1974. Finally, we will pass through the city center with its coffee shops, restaurants and businesses to get a feeling of everyday life in the city.

With most aspects that represent the recent and not so recent history of the city covered, the tour participants will get a good grasp of what Limassol is.
