Paphos — 4 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.
Popular historic sites such as Tombs of the Kings and Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Coral Bay and Latchi Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to George's Watersports - Boat Hire Latchi (in Latchi), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Pissouri) and The Sanctuary Of Apollo (in Episkopi). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at The House of Dionysus, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Aphrodite’s Rock Microbrewery & Brewpub, examine the collection at Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church.

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.
