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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Coral Bay and Lara Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Tombs of the Kings and Neldi Art Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas) and Limassol (Kolossi Castle & Kourion). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, shop like a local with Aliathon Gallery, and browse the different shops at Kings Avenue Mall.
