However, in some cities, the downtown, as one of the oldest parts of a city, may appear to have little to offer the city's development and thus, year after year, is in danger of dying.In this regard, Sidon, the ancient Mediterranean city, the third largest city in Lebanon, the gate to the south of the country, and one of the oldest harbors in the Levant area is a great example of a city that has been trying every day and through different scopes and entities to revitalize its old city. Sidon may be challenging itself to move from the darkness to the light, but this wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't surrounded by residents who love their city, Parliament members who focused with the municipality's mayor on the redevelopment of Sidon's downtown and entities who challenged themselves to show the best in their city.Consequently, Sidon International Festivals contributed to shedding the light on the old city of Sidon by organizing a touristic day during their festivals in 2016 and a touristic night in 2017 which encouraged people from all over Lebanon to come to Sidon, visit the old city and discover its gems for themselves.
