  • [01] Cyprus Antiquities Department introduces tours for the Blind

    The Cyprus Department of Antiquities has launched a pilot tour program for the Blind, giving the opportunity to people with visual disabilities to visit various archeological sites of great importance.

    On Saturday, a group of people visited the famous House of Dionysos, part of the Paphos Mosaics in the southwest coast of the island. The project takes place in coordination and cooperation with the School for the Blind in Nicosia. Communications and Works Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos said that promoting the welfare state where all citizens will have access to cultural sites and events is a high priority for the government.

    He said that the Department of Antiquities has issued brochures in the Braille system, in both the Greek and the English language with the aim to accommodate people who are visually impaired and provide them with the opportunity to visit Cyprus' most popular archeological sites. The Minister also said that the government is supporting all the projects that aim at the welfare of all the citizens with disabilities and to this end has constructed footbridges for better access to churches and other sites.
