I’ve found now that the old town has almost been finished with its re-generation project that you can’t go often enough and see something new to visit, so last week Carolyn and I took another girlie trip into Paphos Old Town. Parking the car we wandered through the tiny streets visiting many of the lovely shops there. Many shoe shops (which I love) and bags too. There are also a few jewellery shops well worth a visit selling some beautiful jewellery. There are some quirky coffee shops too offering soft drinks, coffee and if tempted you can also try a Cypriot Coffee. Most coffees come with a glass of iced water. Some of the coffee shops serve fantastic cakes – home made carrot cake, apple cake and even scones.
Before coffee we had a wander round the Municipal Gardens to look at the Sculptures which had been done. One from China, and most of course were Cypriot.
Coffee was then a welcome break – somewhere to sit in the shade after our culture lesson. As some of you will know one of my favourite places is Omnia Espresso and Wine Bar – it is in such a great location to watch the world go by, looking out to the Municipal Gardens and to the various Government Buildings including the Town Hall. A stage was being built in front of where we were sitting which was being used that evening to hold one of the many Cultural Events.
Heading back towards the car we came across a number of murals created by local artists. Well worth a stroll to see them through the old town down the narrow roads. No excuse now that the weather is cooler.
