Paphos is one of the most beautiful, ancient towns in Cyprus. Once the capital of the island of Cyprus during Roman times, today it is a small harbour slowly becoming an attractive tourist destination.
The history of Paphos dates back to the Neolithic period and to the Greek Goddess Aphrodite who emerged from the sea at this very site. Many rulers have controlled Paphos, that include the Mycenaean’s, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, Venetians, Turkish and the British.
Once a major port, it lost its position during the British rule.
Today, however, Paphos is evolving as a major tourist centre with the help of government and private sector investment. Dams and proper roads have been built, and money has been spent on development of hotels, restaurants and luxury villas to attract tourists. Kato Pafos, is the main attraction of the city as all the hotels and villas are based there and it is also nearby the sea.
The architecture of Paphos is very rural, but extremely beautiful. Nature has remained undisturbed and one can find here a variety of astonishing gorges, long stretched beautiful coastlines and nature trails for outdoors activities.

Anthestiria Flower Festival
The Anthestiria Flower Festival is the celebration held to welcome the arrival of spring. To rejoice and enjoy nature’s beauty, a parade of flowers floats and people carrying fresh flowers travel down from Poseidon Avenue till the old harbour of Kato Paphos. This festival has an historical and mythological value when banquets were arranged every four years as a mark of distinction to the God of theatre and parties, Dionysus. Similar to ancient feasts the Anthestiria festival also has a theme. The word Anthestiria is derived from the word ‘anthos’ meaning flower and the festival is organized to celebrate the rebirth of man and nature.
Address: Paphos Parade
Paphos Aphrodite Festival
Paphos Aphrodite Festival is a cultural event where the organizers invite a well-known opera troupe in town. The event takes place in front of the medieval castle in Paphos and has witnessed many past harmonious performances like Verdi's "La Traviata" and "Aida", Bizet's "Carmen" and Puccini's "Turandot". We went to this last time we were in paphos and it was an amazinig experience so see an opera in such amazing surrounding well worth a visit if a bit pricey.
Made up of ancient ruins and buildings, the Acropolis is situated near the new Paphos Lighthouse. Built in the second century, the Odeon is made of pure limestone. Today it is used to stage musical and live performances. The structure is semi circular in shape with 12 rows of seats. It occupied an important place in ancient Cypriot history and even today with the influx of tourists its value has not diminished. To the south of the Odean are the remains of the Roman temple of Asclepius, God of Medicine and to the north are remains of ancient town walls.
The Mosaics of Paphos
Situated near the Paphos harbour, are some superbly preserved mosaic remains dating from third to fifth century A.D. These mosaic floors can be seen in the Villa of Dionysos, Orpheus and Aion, and the Villa of Theseus, in the form of pavements. A farmer accidentally discovered these mosaics while he was ploughing his field. Till today, the villas are being excavated and the mosaics that are being found depict scenes from Greek mythology and are made from small cubes of marble stone along with glass paste. These small marble cubes are called tesserae. The wide range of these beautiful designs can be seen in the Villa of Dionysos where nearly 5,985 sq.ft of area consisting of 14 rooms are covered with the mosaics.

Tombs of the Kings
As the name suggests, no kings are buried here. But actually it’s the resting place of 100 Ptolemaic aristocrats who died in Paphos between 3 B.C. and 3 A.D. Located northwest of Paphos harbour, near the Coral bay the structure consists of solid rock formations featuring Doric pillars and walls decorated with frescoes. Ongoing archaeological excavations have discovered the Church of Paleoekklisia, which depict Byzantine frescoes.

The history behind Adonis Baths relates to the love story between Aphrodite and Adonis. Both Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Persephone, the Goddess of Underworld, loved Adonis. This led to a fight between Aphrodite and Persephone and the court ruled that Adonis should spend one third of his time with Aphrodite, one third with Persephone and the remaining is reserved for him. But Adonis cheated on Persephone by spending the one-third time reserved for him, with Aphrodite. Persephone got angry and got him killed by a wild boar. After hearing the news, Aphrodite ran towards Adonis and while doing so she bled from her feet. The route through which Aphrodite ran and where blood dripped from her feet has caused lilies to grow, so goes the saying.
The Paphos Fort or castle is located at the Kato Paphos harbor. It was originally a Byzantine fort, but was remodeled by the Lusignans. But in 1570 the Venetians destroyed the castle, but during the Ottoman rule the castle was restored to it old glory, expanded and reinforced. Built of strong and large stones, the castle is connected to the harbor via an arched bridge. There are very few windows but the view from the top of castle is superb. The fort is noted in the UNESCO list of world heritage sites and is fully protected.
All these are a small selection of what you can do while in paphos. There is also the famous bar street where you will find many bars and clubs where you can drink and dance the night away. here is a link to such a guide http://www.paphos.com/v/nightlife/
