Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Nicosia is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Gulf Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. In July, Nicosia is a bit cooler than Dubai - with highs of 43°C and lows of 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Paphos.
