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.
Go for a jaunt from Paphos to Pedoulas to see Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos about 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, take a memorable tour with Horse Riding Paphos - Eagle Mountain Ranch, sample the tasty concoctions at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company, and go for a walk through Paphos Harbour and Port.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Paphos trip planner.

Prague, Czech Republic to Paphos is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Prague to Paphos. Traveling from Prague in December, you will find days in Paphos are much hotter (22°C), and nights are a bit warmer (12°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to drive to Ayia Napa.

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Change things up with these side-trips from Ayia Napa: Larnaca (Church of Saint Lazarus, Hala Sultan Tekke, &more) and The Cyprus Museum (in Nicosia). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Nissi Beach, stroll through Fig Tree Bay, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Profitis Elias, and explore the activities along Blue Lagoon.

For photos, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Ayia Napa road trip planning website.

You can drive from Paphos to Ayia Napa in 2.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In December, daily temperatures in Ayia Napa can reach 21°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Kyrenia.
