Run in Old Town Nicosia with a local runner-artist

Experience hosted by Pola

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English, Greek, and Spanish

What you'll do

Join me for a 6-8km run around the Medieval walled city of Nicosia where the past blends with the new, where history is around every corner and where a dividing line still cuts the city in half.
I will take you through its narrow streets and explore hidden gems, quiet neighborhoods, but also busy shopping areas. We will run by the UN controlled Buffer Zone and finish with a pass by the new and highly modern-and somewhat controversial-new city square.
We will run by many of the cultural sites of the old town, like museums, art galleries, workshops and studios and depending on the time of the day we might include a brief visit at an artists studio or gallery.
The tour will end with a local pastry at a traditional bakery that we will pick up...on the run...!
You don't need to be a fast runner for this tour and if you are, be ready to slow it down.. this is a sightseeing run.
We will take a few stops for photos and possibly for a visit at an art studio or gallery.
If requested from before, we can cross the checkpoint to the other side of the division and have a brief run around the monuments in the old town. That entails carrying an ID or passport so it has to be pre-arranged.
Also, we can start at a different time of the day-and even the day- if requested ahead of time.
