Back in the day, gardens and backyards offered a cool respite from the heat to residents, with trees providing much-needed shade while the scent of flowers created a pleasant atmosphere for hanging out with friends and a chance to talk, laugh and relax.

Today, these backyards and gardens of homes in Limassol are few and far between, as the city and the needs of its residents have changed. Many of them, however, have taken on a new life. Homes have been replaced by bars and restaurants, with gardens that offer the ultimate summer refuge, serving up ice-cold drinks and culinary delights as an antidote to the heat.

An idyllic environment, relaxing vibes, music, entertainment and a sense of the city’s history as represented by these wonderful buildings all make for good reasons to enjoy one such garden for your night out this evening.
