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.
Kids will enjoy Tombs of the Kings and Kato Paphos Archaeological Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Limassol City (Kolossi Castle & Kourion) and Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 26th (Wed) at Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Paphos Harbour Castle, enjoy the sand and surf at Coral Bay, take in the pleasant sights at Paphos Harbour and Port, and look for gifts at The Little Shop.
