Considering visiting Paphos? While for many this wonderful Mediterranean haven is by far the most beautiful spot across the island, all towns have their traits and drawbacks – and Paphos is no exception, even though its positives far outnumber the negatives.
Still, having a chart of Do’s and don’ts can mark the difference between merely enjoying the visit to Paphos, and having the time of your life! After consulting our experienced Segway Tour guides, we came up with a list of 6 visiting Do’s and Don’ts while touring Paphos.
- Relax and enjoy the view
Be it the Green Hills, the Medieval fort or one of its azure-water shore, genuinely enjoying the enchanting soul of Paphos requires taking some time to relax, pick a spot or two and enjoy the view. In such a captivating coastline, visitors have many opportunities to choose a lovely spot and marvel the view.
- Take A Tour
Learning is one of the best things about travelling – along with visiting places you have never seen before, and touring combines them both! Seeing the world is far more educational and fan than school or college, since there are no books or writing involved, and all your senses contribute to your learning process. Moreover, since you are experiencing this in real life instead of reading it a book, it will stay with you for a long time.
You can travel in time and space, in worlds long gone without getting a headache, regardless of your age, educational background or interests; and enjoying this condensed educational course on a two-wheel vehicle surround by friends and family, thus having a chance to see most of Paphos’s historic sights in a little less than two hours rises the touring experience into a lifetime experience.
- Take great pictures of the Limanaki Shoreline
Paphos is a cosmos of inspiration stimulants, so do take as many snapshots as you can, especially of its mesmerising shoreline and majestic rock formations. Catching a view of the sun setting across the waters of the Limanaki shore is a sought-after prize among amateur and professional photographers.
- Don’t Limit Yourself to Downtown
Sure, Paphos’ downtown, with its nice café’s, socialising and cuisine could lure into never getting on your foot in the suburbs, but that would a be a gross mistake. Remember that Cyprus is considered one of the most charming summer destinations in Europe! Its most precious gems are found by the sea, not in shopping and drinking coffee!
- Don’t Skip the Museums
Another trap few-days visitors often fall into is skipping the city’s museums altogether, in a desperate effort to spend as much time possible on the beach. Paphos boasts one of the most vibrant histories and cultures in Europe, spanning for at least 5 millennia; it would be a pity to be there for a few days and not take a glimpse of the local traditions and legends.
- Don’t Miss out on Historic Sites
That is not very probable, but we should warn you against it. Paphos has numerous sites of archaeological and cultural interest, including a medieval fort, one of the oldest Basilica’s in Christendom and imposing Hellenistic mosaics and tombs. Actually, all these sites are included in our Paphos Segway Tour – so you can visit them in less than two hours in the most instructive and fun way possible!
Ah, there is one more thing you do not do when making your plans to visit the place – leave bookings for the last moment! So, join now our Segway tour around the town!
