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.
Explore Paphos' surroundings by going to Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia), Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery (in Pano Panayia) and Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Tombs of the Kings, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the pleasant sights at Paphos Harbour and Port, and sample the tasty concoctions at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company.
