Paphos

— 16 nights
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. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The House of Dionysus and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery. Explore Paphos' surroundings by going to Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Pissouri (Scuba & Snorkeling, Pissouri Beach, &more) and Aphrodite Trail (in Latchi). Make the 6th (Sat) a rough and rugged day at local off-road trails.

Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture.

Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat.
