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.
Take a break from the city and head to Mackenzie Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Discover out-of-the-way places like Kourion Beach and The House of Dionysus. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paphos: Barefoot Designs Art Gallery (in Pissouri), Akamas Peninsula National Park (in Neo Chorion) and Every Day Is A Gift (in Larnaca). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Coral Bay, delve into the distant past at Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, make a trip to Saint Paul's Pillar, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church.
