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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Folkloric Museum. Explore hidden gems such as The House of Dionysus and Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul. Go for a jaunt from Paphos to Pano Panayia to see Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, kick back and relax at Coral Bay, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church.
