Travel Paphos For A Mixture Of History Harbour, Hotels & Holidays
Travel Paphos and you will find both the main town and a district on the island.
Paphos town has 2 distinct areas, Kato which means lower Paphos and what one would consider the tourist area and Ktima which is Upper Paphos (although anywhere else Pano means upper).
Ktima (also known as the Old Town by Cypriots) has more charm and character, you will find the market here and older, more colonial buildings housing government buildings, and the Mouttalo area, now the sadly run down old turkish quarter, but you will have an idea how things were before the conflict in 1974 It is the modern regional centre for administration, trade and culture.
People leave the sanctuary of their accommodation at night and promenade along towards the harbour area, lined with places to eat and drink. You will certainly get the holiday atmosphere during the summer months.
In winter it is less frenetic and you will enjoy sitting out having a drink with the sunshine in November I am sure.
Side note: it is expensive here, it's a bit commercial but you will certainly get the atmosphere, but bear in mind your holiday funds may take a bit of a battering here.
Travel the Paphos District, which stretches from Aphrodites Rock in the east to Agios Georgious in the west, the gateway to the Akamas Peninsula, the national park of Cyprus.
