Paphos Cyprus

Situated on the south west coast of Cyprus, Paphos holds great appeal to visitors of all ages. Steeped in history, with a wealth of ancient sites, some dating back to the 4th century BC, Paphos is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Paphos is renowned as the birthplace of Greek goddess Aphrodite. Modern-day Paphos is divided into two parts, the upper area, known as Ktima, being the commercial centre and the old centre of Paphos, which lies inland on a high rocky edge and overlooking the second part. The second part is known as Kato Paphos containing the main archaeological points of interest, like medieval baths, catacombs and a simple fishermen’s church, as well as the Paphos Archaeological Site, which houses a number of attractions, including the House of Dionysos and the House of Theseus, both ruins of large Roman villas famous for their mosaics. The surrounding area is countryside, rich in vegetation with banana plantations, citrus groves and vineyards which lead on inland to the gentle foothills of the Western Troodos Mountains. Paphos is a fascinating city with all sorts of ancient ruins and areas of exquisite natural beauty. It is also a fantastic holiday resort where to enjoy beautiful beaches and lovely taverns offering delicious food.
