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.
Visit Coral Bay and Tpoulorotsos Beach for some beach relaxation. Get some historical perspective at Tombs of the Kings and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery. Change things up with these side-trips from Paphos: Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas) and Fyti Weaving Museum (in Fyti). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, sample the tasty concoctions at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company, delve into the distant past at The House of Dionysus, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church.
