Paphos bundles a remarkable array of sights and attractions into such a small space: museums and archaeological sites, clean beach resorts, medieval fortresses, age-old temples standing on empty hillsides, pretty valleys chequered with vineyards, grain fields and olive groves all completing the landscape.
The Western Troodos Mountains adding a stunning backdrop to the coastal town.
A magnificent island where one can swim and ski all in the same day, this is truly a holiday paradise with something for everyone.
And with local beaches such as Coral Bay offering luxurious white sand and clear waters, it is the perfect place to relax, top up the tan and enjoy swimming in the ocean without a care in the world.
Plus, dozens of quaint villages nestle in the mountains surrounding the town, with life relaxed and seemingly unchanged for decades.
This gives tourists the opportunity to experience a slice of the real Cyprus, untarnished by commercialism and the growing holiday market, while also ensuring that the area delivers for more than just sun, sea and sand.
However, Paphos offers all three of those in abundance with the island of Cyprus offering long, hot summers and mild winters.
Places to go:
Aphrodites Rock,is one of the most stunning parts of the Cypriot coastline, also the birth place of Aphrodite. Legend has it that this is where the Goddess of Love emerged from the sea, and everywhere she stepped between here and Paphos itself, sprang life, and that's why Paphos district is so fertile
The ancient Tombs of the Kings. This is a World Heritage site which , was the final resting place of about 100 Ptolemaic aristocrats who lived and died in the city between 3 BC and 3 AD. The tombs are impressive, carved out of solid rock, some featuring Doric pillars and frescoed walls. Archaeological excavations are ongoing at the site, which also features a church known as Paleoekklisia, which sports traces of Byzantine frescoes.
The Troodos Mountains their monasteries and villages are well worth a trip. While most tourism is concentrated around the coastal resorts, the interior of the island offers a charm of its own. The undulating hillsides of the Troodos and Makheras mountains are spotted with hundreds of tiny villages, which, especially in summer, offer a cool retreat from the hustle and bustle of the beaches. In winter the same mountains offer the option of alpine-style holiday.
Start the day in Ktima, or upper Pafos, with a visit to the Covered Market, where you’ll find lace, embroidery, ceramics and leather goods on sale and an array of open-air stalls selling everything the Cypriot housewife could wish for, from kebab skewers to fresh fruit and vegetables.
Acropolis: Near the modern Paphos lighthouse is sited a complex of ancient buildings, including a Roman Odeon, built in the 2nd century AD, which has been restored and is now used for summer orchestral and stage performances. The Odeon was the focus of the ancient city centre, of which some ruins still remain in the area. South of the Odeon are the remnants of the Roman Temple of Asclepius, the God of Medicine, and north of the lighthouse are the ruins of the ancient town walls.
Baths of Aphrodite: A romantic side trip from Paphos is a visit to the natural grotto on the Akamas Peninsula near Polis (30 miles/48km north of Pahpos) where legend has it that the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, used to take her baths. The serene pool, shaded by a fig tree and surrounded by beautiful examples of maindenhair fern, can be reached by nature trails from Akamas.
Catacombs: A large pistachio tree marks the entrance to the underground catacombs of Agia Solomoni in Kato Paphos. The tree is a strange sight, festooned as it usually is with pieces of cloth tied onto it by the faithful as offerings, in the hope that this sacred tree will cure various ailments. The catacombs themselves were carved into Fabrica hill, below the ancient Roman city wall, in the 4th century BC, and later became chapels for the early Christians. The underground chapels feature some interesting frescoes and graffiti left by 13th-century Crusaders, and there are numerous legends and stories attached to the patron saint Ayia Solomoni. Visitors are advised to take a torch along to explore the catacombs
The Mosaics of Paphos: The striking mosaic floors in a series of ancient Roman noblemen’s villas, dating from the third to fifth century AD, are a must-see for visitors to Paphos. The site where the villas are still being excavated can be found about 300 metres from the Paphos harbour. The mosaics featuring mythological scenes are visible in the houses of Dionysus, Orpheus and Aion, and the Villa of Theseus. All were made of small cubes of marble and stone, called tesserae, with glass paste added to widen the range of colour. In the House of Dionysus, for example, 5,985 square feet (556 sq metres) of floor space in 14 rooms are covered with the gorgeous mosaics.
