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.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Sun): soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, explore the ancient world of The House of Dionysus, then take in the exciting artwork at Neldi Art Gallery, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, and finally buy something for everyone on your list at Kings Avenue Mall. On the 1st (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: shop like a local with Aliathon Gallery, examine the collection at Fyti Weaving Museum, then see human ingenuity at work at Evretou Dam, then take an in-depth tour of Marion - Arsinoe Archaeological Museum, and finally indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite's Rock Brewing Company.
