Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paphos: Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion) and Kourion (in Limassol City). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, make a trip to The House of Dionysus, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and explore the historical opulence of Paphos Harbour Castle.
