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.
Let the collections at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos and Byzantine Museum capture your imagination. Kato Paphos Archaeological Park and Tombs of the Kings are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion), Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia) and Kourion (in Limassol). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Coral Bay, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, don't miss a visit to The House of Dionysus, and explore the historical opulence of Paphos Harbour Castle.
