Blue Lagoon (Akamas) tour from Paphos

56 reviews
The program includes two exciting trips: a bus trip and then a sea cruise on a ship. <br>We will see a unique natural landscape, which form sea caves. We will visit the local winery and taste the real Cypriot wine. We go to a small shady garden, where there is a grotto with a romantic name - the Bath of Aphrodite. <br>Another stop is the fishing village of Latchi, from whose port we will continue our journey by ship to the blue lagoon.

This is no ordinary museum. For €5 per person, plus €5 for the optional guidebook, you have a chance to go inside the special home of a lady, Chryso, who preserves the life's work of her late husband and renowned archeologist, George Eliades. His eclectic collection of items, the house frozen in time and the 2nd/3rd century BC tomb and other artefacts in the garden make for a quirky and fascinating 4* visit. Add chatting to Chryso and you have a well-spent 5* hour or so...

Visitors have to remember that this is a private museum and reflects the interests of its founder. There are farm implements, archaeological finds, coins, implements used for weaving, pottery and lace making. There is not much in the way of signage and it is all housed in an old home with a pleasant courtyard. At 5 Euro it is more expensive than most of the ancient sites in Cyprus and although the collection is large you can't get close to most of it and it is all crowded together.

Every time we have tried to visit this museum it is "clised for refurbishment" - even in the year of Paphos - City of Culture! The web-site is not updated to say that it is closed. Call before visiting.

We stumbled upon this small but wonderfully curated little ethnographic museum which is a wonderful reflection of the burning passion of the late archaeologist,George Eliades, and his lovely wife Chryso, who spent many happy years together curating an eclectic array of quaint and quirky artefacts to illuminate the past. Mrs.Chryso Eliades is an amazing lady and she is a treasure trove of information but it was her utterly charming, witty, and ever so welcoming attitude that really brought this place to life. Chryso not only shared information about her house and the exhibits but also her own family history and we felt privileged to meet her. We have been to many museums but this one is a very special place.
