Paphos

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.
Popular historic sites such as Tombs of the Kings and Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Coral Bay and Latchi Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Pissouri), George's Watersports - Boat Hire Latchi (in Latchi) and Limassol City (The Sanctuary Of Apollo & Kourion Beach). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at The House of Dionysus, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company, and see the interesting displays at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos.
