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.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Avdimou Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The House of Dionysus and Tombs of the Kings. Venture out of the city with trips to Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia), Latchi Beach (in Latchi) and Kolossi Castle (in Limassol). There's much more to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company, make a trip to Saint Paul's Pillar, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
