Cyprus, Paphos, 18 – 22 March 2023

Nicosia to Paphos (pronounced Pafos) is a two hour bus ride cost 7 euro. You depart from the Central Bus Station near the Old town, there are a few stops along the way in the city as well. There is a bus almost every hour with not as many on the weekend. The website for the Intercity Busses is – https://intercity-buses.com/en/ . Put your suitcase in the hold and buy your ticket from the driver, the bus was only half full if that. At the moment they are renovating the Main Bus Station in Paphos so you get dropped off in a car park that looks deserted but I later learnt that sometimes there are taxis and the 610 bus stops there. So your best bet is to get the 610 bus E1.50 to the Harbour Bus Terminus and from there you can get a local bus to anywhere in the city. Taxi’s are few and far between in Cyprus. The website for busses in Paphos is – https://www.pafosbuses.com/ , the Cyprus by Bus App also works in this city.

People drive on the left and the electric plugs are the big square UK kind as well.

This place is very popular with tourists from the UK, right now is the off season so it was not crowded at all. Nicosia is less popular with tourists. I came here thinking it would have a similar old city atmosphere to Nicosia but it does not hahaha. It is a typical seaside resort with beaches and promenades along the sea. You can get tours from here to anywhere on the island, very well organised. The old town here has been completely renovated and is quite sterile. The Archeological Park is large and has some very nice mosaics, the rest is in ruins.

I also went on a day tour into the mountains to some traditional villages, very good.

  2. Surely they could have come up with a more interesting name for their version of Turkish Delight!
