Paphos

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.
Visiting Coral Bay and Aphrodite's Rock will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Tombs of the Kings and Neldi Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Paphos: Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos (in Pedoulas) and Oleastro Olive Park and Museum (in Anogyra). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, look for gifts at Aliathon Gallery, browse the different shops at Kings Avenue Mall, and take in the exciting artwork at Municipal Gallery.
