Paphos — 3 nights

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Lara Beach and Sea Caves. You'll get in some beach time at Aphrodite's Beach and St George Beach. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at The Villa of Theseus and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Agia Paraskevi Church.

Plan my trip to Paphos with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In August, daily temperatures in Paphos can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Limassol City.

Beaches · Ruins · Nightlife
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.
