What to do in Paphos
Paphos, located in southwestern Cyprus, is a beautiful city, echoing diverse vibes influenced by its various conquerors and offering amazing landscapes and romantic spots. According to Greek Mythology, Paphos was the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, apparently offering to the city some of her unprecedented beauty. Visitors still enjoy to discover nowadays this beauty across New Paphos and its modern vibes, but also in the legendary Kato Paphos for the history enthusiasts. Moreover, if you are visiting Paphos during the summer, some of the finest beaches in Cyprus are located near this city – sand, sun and sea are the epitome of relaxation.
Starting your exploration in New Paphos, visit Paphos Castle, built by the Byzantines to guard the harbor. It is a landmark of the city, having served as a prison and salt warehouse in the past, whereas now, besides being an emblem, is also a centre of cultural arts festivals. Close to the harbor, spend some time in Paphos Archaeological Park, featuring artefacts from prehistory to Roman Era. Visit the ruins of four villas decorated with amazing mosaics, portraying scenes from Roman mythology, the Ancient Odeon and the Tombs of Kings, an underground burial site with Doric columns. If you are a history lover, pay a visit to Paphos Archaeological Museum, displaying collections from the Neolithic age to the 18th century, including thousands-years-old coins and sculptures, as the Bust of Aphrodite.
Take a private tour to Kato Paphos as well, discovering Paphos’ route across the history. Visit Hrysopolitissa Basilica, dated back to 4th century and destroyed around 653 AD during the Arab raids. On the west, you will find St. Paul’s pillar, where it is said that St. Paul was bound and tortured for preaching Christianity. Due to his work, Cyprus became one of the first Christian states in the world.
Organize also a taxi transfer and visit Aphrodite’s Rock to explore the place where Greek Goddess, Aphrodite, emerged from. Located in Kouklia, along the main road from Paphos to Limassol, this giant sea rock is in a fact an amazing landscape, fitting for a goddess’s birthplace. Take a walk along the coastline and admire this geological formation – but restrain yourselves from climbing up on it.

It is said that Aphrodite was represented by a conical stone, whereas the south wing of the temple is the best preserved.
