In an effort to promote agrotourism, free guided tours of the Akamas Rural Life museum in Droushia, Paphos will be offered by the region’s tourism development company for the next two months.
Locals who are engaged with traditional professions and arts will give live presentations while a licensed tour guide will provide explanations and general information in Greek and English about the museum, which will be open to the public without an entrance fee.
The tours will be held every Saturday in July and August from 9.30am to 1pm with the aim of increasing traffic at the museum. Droushia’s museum is located in the new building of the village’s community council.
The company invites both locals and tourists to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about rural life and the traditions of the area.
The initiative is part of the deputy ministry of tourism’s strategy and Paphos’ relevant bodies to promote the special features of rural areas and boost sustainable development.
