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.
Attractions like Coral Bay and Fasouri Watermania Water Park make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paphos: Edro III Shipwreck (in Peyia), Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia) and Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 19th (Sun) at Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, get to know the resident critters at Pafos Zoo, Head underground at Sea Caves, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To find reviews, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Paphos trip planner.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Paphos is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. In July, Paphos is a bit warmer than Copenhagen - with highs of 36°C and lows of 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Nicosia.
