Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Get some historical perspective at Salamis Ancient City and Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Famagusta City Walls and Zenobia Wreck. Get out of town with these interesting Ayia Napa side-trips: Larnaca (Church of Saint Lazarus, Art by Theo Michael, & more) and Famagusta (Sea Gate & Monastery of Apostolos Varnavas). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Nissi Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at The Church of the Panagia, explore the activities along Konnos Bay, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Landa Beach.

The legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the capital of western Cyprus, the city of Paphos showcases an abundance of archaeological, architectural, and historical sites.
