Paphos Regional Tourism Board is offering free guided walking tours of old Paphos every Thursday.

The aim is to enrich the tourist experience and to help to further promote the old town and the lesser known parts of the centre, as well as the infrastructure created for the Cultural Capital of Europe 2017.

Two and half hour working tour takes participants to the fruit market past the mosque and the Khan of Ibrahim, on to Markidion Theatre, the old Electricity Power Plant, Attikon cultural centre towards Kennedy square. Participants also have the opportunity to explore the Town Hall square, the 28th October memorial column and the public library 28th.
