Paphos

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paphos: Limassol City (Kolossi Castle & Kourion) and Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, head off-road at local off-road trails, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Pafos Zoo, and step into the grandiose world of Paphos Harbour Castle.

To see maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Paphos tour planner.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Paphos is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. In April in Paphos, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 13°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Nicosia.
