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.
Take a break from the city and head to Coral Bay and Troodos Mountains. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church and Spas. Venture out of the city with trips to Artemis Nature Trail (in Troodos), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Pissouri) and Nelion Winery (in Praitori). There's much more to do: learn about winemaking at Vouni Panayia Winery, explore the fascinating underground world of Sea Caves, explore the striking landscape at Aphrodite's Rock, and delve into the distant past at Tombs of the Kings.
