The Paphos region
The town of Paphos is split into upper and lower Paphos. The lower part contains the harbour, and most of the historic sites, whilst the upper town has a market, shops and museums. Both areas are accessible by bus, taxi and there are car parks. Kato (lower) Paphos has a richness of archaeological sites, which qualified it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the world famous Mosaics, the Odeion (roman theatre), Paphos Fort, Tombs of the Kings, Catacombs, St Pauls Pillar and the early Christian Basilica of Agia Kyriaki. The picturesque harbour, flanked by the impressive mosaics and fort, is lined with tavernas and cafes; an ideal place to sit and people watch. Kitma (upper) Paphos contains a daily fruit and vegetable market, Archaeological Museum, Ethnographical Museum and a covered market selling linen, lace, leather goods and pottery.
The Paphos district includes the beautiful fishing shelter and harbour of Agios Georgios, the 11th century Agios Neofytos Monastery, the unspoilt Akamas Peninsula, the beaches of Lara – a famous sea turtle hatchery, Aphrodite’s Rock, pretty Greek Cypriot villages, wineries, potteries and the Baths of Aphrodite. You can adventure off road to the Akamas’s gorges or Cedar Valley in the Troodos Mountains. Just beyond Pomos Point is a small fishing harbour and sheltered beach ideal for snorkelling or visit one of the many excellent fish restaurants overlooking the marina at Latchi. Coral Bay has sunbeds for hire and watersports, whilst Paphos boasts a blue flag beach. Other amusements include the Waterpark, Donkey Sanctaury, Paphos Bird Park, go-karting, horse riding kayaking, mountain biking, and in the winter as snow falls on Mt Olympus in the Troodos there is skiing, with equipment available for hire at the ski chalet on the mountain.
