Moving around

Paphos, or Pafos, is a city with a mystical aura, believed to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love. A haven to learn about Greek mythology and ancient Byzantine rule. Relax along sandy beaches, explore ancient archaeological sites, and tour wineries carrying on the thousand-year-old tradition of wine-making. 

For those interested in exploring Paphos, we suggest you:

Kato Paphos Archaeological Park

History lovers will enjoy Paphos Archaeological Park, one of the most important sites in Cyprus. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a top tourist attraction in Paphos.

Paphos Harbour

A walk along Paphos harbour is probably going to happen whilst you’re en-route to some of the top Paphos sights. It’s worth allowing a little time to linger.

You’ll pass plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, some of which have tables right next to the sea and are a nice spot for a bite of local cuisine or a cold beer at sunset. There are plenty of shops selling souvenirs and local products and handicrafts.

Explore Paphos Old Town

Paphos was voted the European Capital of Culture 2017 and the old town got a bit of a makeover as a result. The Municipal Market in the pedestrian zone of Ktima sells everything from fruit and vegetables to clothing, pottery and jewellery.

Paphos old town sits high up so stop for a coffee or a glass of local wine at one of the cafes. Some have panoramic views over the countryside to the coast. Seek out the street art in Paphos Old Town or check out local handicrafts at The Place.
