Christmas in Pafos
As beautiful in winter as it is in the summer months, there are plenty of places to explore and sights to discover in the wintertime. Christmas offers the perfect opportunity to visit the more popular tourist attractions. At this time of year, there will be fewer tourists, and even the locals will be busy with their Christmas preparations. All the major attractions will be far less crowded than they are in the summer and you can even have an entire beach all to yourself! Sites such as the Tombs of the Kings are often busy, so this is the ideal time to visit for an amazing experience.
You really must take a stroll around town to enjoy the Christmas decorations that you’ll find all over. Pafos Municipality organises plenty of events around this time, both at the town’s central square and in the general old town area, which has recently been regenerated, increasing the options to locals and tourists substantially.
