Car Hire in Limassol
Limassol emerged out of the 2 ancient most important city-kingdoms, Amathous (to the East of this centre) and Kourion (at its West end). The magnificent setting of the Ancient Kourion Amphitheatre is used for Summer concerts and Theatrical productions.
In the middle ages, Limassol hosted the marriage of Richard the Lionheart with Berengaria of Navarre, from whom he crowned as the Queen of England. Thereafter, the Crusaders made their Headquarters at the Square keep west of Town, known as Kolossi Medieval Castle, where they fostered the making of wines, particularly the sweet essert wine "Commandaria", the oldest named wine in the World.
The Town of Limassol today, is a fully-fledged resort with a 10-mile long coastline, a busy shopping centre coupled with shopping malls in its greater vicinity, waterparks offering a full range of services to its visitors and locals alike and a most diverse No of restaurants, tavernas and a most promising nightlife to suit all tastes.
