Pafos City Tour Highlights

Our tour starts from the harbour car park, next to the Kato Pafos Archaeological Park where you can see the famous Mosaics of Pafos and the remains of the Saranta Kolones fortress (stop 1). There’s no need to book – simply purchase your ticket from the Pafos Sightseeing team at the harbour as you hop aboard.

We take you to the enchanting 13th century church of Agia Kyriaki, the Panagia Chrysopolitissa (pictured), St Paul’s Pillar and the Frankish Baths, together with the catacombs of Pafos and the King's Avenue Mall. We show you one of the earliest Hellenic Theatres to survive in Cyprus and two of the city’s most noteworthy churches: the mighty Agioi Anargyroi and the 12th century church of Agia Solomoni (stops 2 and 3).

Our tour continues to the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Tombs of the Kings archaeological site (stop 4), and then on to Pano Pafos (meaning upper Paphos) and Byzantine Ktima, the Old Town of Pafos. Here, you can visit the large covered agora market, the Agia Sofia/Cami Kebir mosque, the Loutra Turkish Baths, and museums and galleries that helped Paphos (Pafos is the local spelling) to be named the European Capital of Culture for 2017 (stop 5 and 6). We take you to the Pafos District Archaeological Museum and the statue of the first president of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios III (stop 7). 

From here we pass through countryside dotted with citrus and olive trees to the recreational area of Pafos where you can enjoy mini golf at Island Cove and karting (stop 8). We then travel along the beautiful Poseidonos coast road where you can hop off for watersports and to enjoy the long stretches of beach lapped by crystal-clear waters that make Pafos one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean (stops 9-12).

Pafos Sightseeing operates Monday to Friday from April through to November, with hourly departures from the harbour. Choose a one tour ticket for a circular sightseeing tour, or opt for a Hop On Hop Off ticket, which is valid for 24 hours and means you can leave the bus and hop back on again as many times as you wish. Our family tickets are great value if you are travelling with children.
