Cyprus, Paphos

Paphos, Cyprus

There is a great deal packed into a small space on the island of Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean. Not only does it abound with good beaches and holiday resorts, but its relatively tiny landmass is riddled with the relics of ancient history, from the beehive huts of primative man to classical Greek and Roman ruins, and everything imaginable in-between.

Feel the romance in the air in the land where Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, once roamed.

Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou where she was believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she was supposed to have bathed.

The Pafos region is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding or go for your honeymoon.

Pafos town, with its pleasant harbour and medieval fort, combines a cosmopolitan holiday resort, spectacular countryside and historical sites.

The region offers the possibility of combining sea and mountains as well as getting a taste of culture with its many archaeological sites.
