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.
Kick off your visit on the 25th (Tue): delve into the distant past at The House of Dionysus, explore the ancient world of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, then take in the dramatic natural features at Aphrodite's Rock, then kick back and relax at Coral Bay, and finally delve into the distant past at Tombs of the Kings. Here are some ideas for day two: kick back and relax at Latchi Beach, then stop by The Spice House, and then examine the collection at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos.

Plan a trip to Paphos easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
