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.
Get some historical perspective at Tombs of the Kings and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery. Take a break from the city and head to Off-Road & ATV Trails and Scuba & Snorkeling. Get out of town with these interesting Paphos side-trips: Pedoulas (Folkloric Museum & Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church, explore the striking landscape at Aphrodite's Rock, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, and delve into the distant past at The House of Dionysus.
