An, example would be that until recently, Paphos was the only town in Cyprus, which was traffic free. Things have changed in that iconic city due to the constant influx of tourists. The trend toward urbanization and also an increase in population has forced the 21st century onto the centuries old community. Because of the new traffic, there can be some problems that have not been experienced before, especially in the town centre where the roads are narrow. However, there are new road travel developments that have been put forward to improve the situation.

With the new roads, including the Cypriot version of freeways, renting a car for sightseeing in Paphos can be a pleasant way to go. You may find that the best option is a car rental that is insured against collision, accidents, and mileage along with excellent services for tourists. Twenty-four airport pickup is available from most car rental companies and they also offer maps of Cyprus, as well as travel tips and additional drivers to allow you more viewing time, sometimes free of charge. Many of the companies have their own websites where you can book your car. Unlike the US, you will make a choice between manual and automatic cars.

Some of the requirements that need to be fulfilled to rent a car are:

- You need to over 25 years of age.

- You need to have a full valid driving license from your country of origin.

- An international driving license will also suffice.

- Driving is left hand side

Not interested in hands on travel?Taxis are also a very popular way of getting around in Paphos. The two types of taxi services are service taxis and private taxis. With service taxis, they have to be shared with other unknown travellers. The safety issue when travelling with unknown people is something for you to consider. The private taxis are more preferable as you will be travelling alone or with friends and family.

There are numerous ways to get to Cyprus and the wonderful world of Paphos, the carrier and the ultimate path is yours. One suggestion would be to fly to a European port city of your choice and then sail into the country and the city as people have for millennium or fly into the smallish 21st century airport on the island itself. The options abound and imagination may be the most important thing that you bring to the plan.

Enjoy your travel to Eden and into history. It is well worth your time and effort.
