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 some historical perspective at Tombs of the Kings and Paphos Harbour Castle. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Coral Bay and Lara Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Paphos side-trips: Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Limassol City (Kolossi Castle & Kourion) and Pano Panayia (Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery & Vouni Panayia Winery). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, don't miss a visit to The House of Dionysus, view the masterpieces at Neldi Art Gallery, and see the interesting displays at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos.

To see ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Paphos online road trip planner.

Budapest, Hungary to Paphos is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Budapest to Paphos. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Budapest in August: high temperatures in Paphos hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Protaras.
