Paphos

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 Kato Paphos Archaeological Park are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Kourion. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paphos: Limassol City (Carob Mill Museum & Kolossi Castle), Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery (in Pano Panayia) and Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The House of Dionysus, take in the spiritual surroundings of Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church, hit all the best shops with Neldi Art Gallery, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul.

Beaches · Ruins · Castles
From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. 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. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
