I like the new upgraded old town. Now you can find more places to drink and eat. New small cafes and restaurants/taverns. You can also find some clothes shops, jewellery shops, etc. The streets now are clean and tidy which is very positive!! During the day though it is still quiet it gets busier later in the afternoon and becomes really busy at night with the cafes/pubs having live music or djs. On sunday the shops are close which i think it is negative as the old town is a place for residents and tourists that go around every day and on that day you can only walk and sit to a cafe.

The old town of Paphos sits slightly up on the hillside from the shoreline. It is quite compact and has some interesting buildings. There is a great café Nero which has an amazing view across down to Paphos harbour. The best way to view the old town is on foot or by bike and the main attractions I guess all the meals and graffiti artist drawings.

Walked up to the old town from the harbour area and had a break at the Mall before heading up the hill. Walk up isn’t that special as it is a busy road with shops and businesses that have cars parked on or near the path. At the fork in the road you go left and at first the area seems a bit run down but as you go up little further you are greeted by a classy looking cafe Nero coffee shop and large wooden platform with views of the town and the sea. Admittedly nothing special as below the platform is a car park. But nice looking coffee shop and area. Go a little further and you see the redevelopment with smart pedestrianised little streets which contain small boutique shops and cafes etc. There is also a covered market with lots of local gifts and tourist gifts. The covered market is ok but not as smart as the nearby streets. There is a small nice looking church and some other viewing areas of the town and coast below. Not a bad little area that is very well developed, just not really a traditional old town most would expect.

610 bus from Harbour to Old Town.
It feels more modern than old which is a bit of a shame, lots of building work happening and will be bright and colourful once completed.
Many bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from.
We enjoyed looking through the little lanes and we stumbled across a very peaceful and tranquil courtyard for a drink - Kiniras Garden.
Bought some nice gifts from some of the local shops, everything is handmade.

Regrettably, a visit on a hot day to the old town proved a disappointment. Quite a few of the shops were closed, and those that were open were void of tourists. The Covid pandemic wreaked havoc on the island's tourist industry and had a devastating effect on the old town. It was really sad to walk the empty streets, and for a tourist, practically nothing to see, save maybe the nice architectural renovation of the old khan ( a former rest place for travelers and their horses) and surrounding buildings.
cost for a taxi from Poseidonos Avenue to/from the Old Town Euro 8 for each direction, taking less than ten minutes.

Took a bus to old town, driver told us best stop to get off. Initially followed others who’d got off, ended up in quaint little lanes, with coffee and craft shops. Found the market and there were lots of lovely handmade items. Had a cocktail in a wonderful bar in the centre, see photo of wall.Highly recommend a visit

Walked into the old town from our hotel on the king’s road, about 30 minutes.
Now the old town is lovely but you can easily miss the hidden gems of small streets shops, cafe and the tourist market.
Head for the market behind cafe Nero and you will find streets to explore.
If you miss it you’ll end up in the square with all the official building and a few rubbish shops.
It’s well worth a trip but you’ll only need a couple of hours to see everything.

Save your time and energy and have a day on the nearest beach with an ice cream in one hand and the love of your life in the other. We made the mistake of thinking that as the weather was going to be warm we could go for a walk round the old town. Was promised narrow streets and colourful shops but they are rebuilding the area so nothing open. Market area and shops fenced off by builders and cranes in the area. There are a few bars and restaraunts open but the noise and dust put us off staying for a meal. We did meet one cpl from the same hotel and they asked if we,d found anything yet. That type of place,

A very pleasant place to spend a couple of hours. We took the bus from the harbour and had a nice time exploring the old streets and buildings. Yes, there’s quite a lot of construction and closed places, but lots of money for regeneration going in and some very nice views over Paphos harbour and some nice cafes, restaurants and bars. We enjoyed the trip and it was well worth the bus ride.

We haven’t been to Paphos Old Town for some 15 months and as we were staying with friends then we felt a visit was overdue. Very relaxing and lovely peaceful atmosphere accompanied us as we strolled around the pedestrianised areas. The renovation and updating of the Old Town continues and is being carried out with a lot of love and attention. Plenty of outlets to satisfy everyone’s requirements and well worth a visit.
