Enchanting Paphos

Paphos.

Paphos, legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, sits on the rugged west coast of Cyprus. The Goddess of Love and Beauty acts as an ever-present force in the city, and brings visitors in their thousands each year.

A city of two very distinct sides, one a tourist hotspot and the other traditionally Cypriot. That said, culture vultures will fall in love with the former, due to its historical treasures and archaeological sites offering a link to the ancient world. The wonderful Tomb of the Kings, a necropolis carved from solid rock to hold the remains of Paphitic aristocrats, is a must-see. Watch a summer concert at the beautiful Odeon amphitheatre, before heading to the harbour to sample the delectable freshly-caught seafood with a glass of local wine. Those who wish to see more of Cyprus should visit Limmasol, for its stunning beaches, or escape to sleepy Polis to see the Baths of Aphrodite on the Akamas Peninsula. Our flights to Paphos run during the summer months, so get booked in now.

Paphos
Paphos.

Paphos is a city of juxtaposition, where age-old archaeological treasures sit alongside resorts built in the latter part of the 20th century. Split into two separate parts, Kato Paphos and Ktima Paphos, you’ll find historic wonders and tourism in the former and a more traditional Cypriot lifestyle in Ktima. High on your list to visit should be the world-renowned Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which amongst other gems, contains four Roman villas with exquisite and largely complete mosaic flooring.
