Explore Paphos' surroundings by going to Larnaca (Church of Saint Lazarus & Hala Sultan Tekke). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Tombs of the Kings, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul, step into the grandiose world of Paphos Harbour Castle, and do some rugged touring at local off-road trails.

From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
