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.
Take a break from the city and head to Coral Bay and Latchi Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul. Get out of town with these interesting Paphos side-trips: Pano Panayia (Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery & Vouni Panayia Winery). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church, explore the historical opulence of Paphos Harbour Castle, delve into the distant past at Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Paphos online trip itinerary builder.

Cairo, Egypt to Paphos is an approximately 7-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Cairo in October, with highs in Paphos at 81°F and lows at 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) so you can go by car to Limassol City.
