The Old Town

On our previous two visits to Paphos the old town is an area we haven't really checked out, other than getting the bus to Karavella station and wandering around the immediate area for 20 minutes whilst waiting for a connection (and there wasn't much to see round there!).

I understand the area has had a bit of a revamp, is it worth checking out for an hour or two on our July visit? Whats there and most importantly, where exactly is classed as the old town and how is it best got to?! Cheers.

Definitely worth a look.

Get off the bus at the market, cross the road into the market and head for Makarios Ave - which is lined with independent shops and now pedestrianised. At the other end of Makarios Ave from the market, you’ll come to Kennedy Square.

The old town sprawls, and it’s difficult to cover on foot, but I would suggest just wandering and exploring. If you get lost, just head downhill and you’ll end up back down in Kato Paphos - it’s not far and all downhill.

Paphos Life website has an excellent recent blog about the old town.......

Great info, thanks for that. It sounds (and looks!) good, we'll check it out.

Any recommendations for a spot of lunch? Any not to be missed gems there?

Muse is a nice spot for lunch - lovely setting with great views of the coast. Modern Mediterranean menu. It’s about a 15 minute walk from the market and you’ll pass by the Town Hall and Byzantine Museum. Or Laona, just off Makarios Ave near the market. Very traditional with exceptional hospitality.
