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.
Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Kato Paphos Archaeological Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Akamas Peninsula National Park and Aphrodite's Rock. Step out of Paphos with an excursion to Oleastro Olive Park and Museum in Anogyra--about 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Tombs of the Kings, take in the exciting artwork at Aliathon Gallery, enjoy the sand and surf at Coral Bay, and shop like a local with Municipal Gallery.
