A Ride though the Troodos Mountains

The destination is sprinkled with Byzantine churches, monasteries and scenic villages along with markets selling local food produce and artifacts. The landmark Troodos Mountains were the epicenter of the land’s struggle for freedom.

Walk to the Famous Tombs

The 30 minute walk from the main harbor of Paphos is worth it when you experience a potent sense of intrigue and a mysterious aura while viewing the necropolis dating back to 300 BC. There are caves, underground structures, walls engraved with ancient religious and cultural symbols along with numerous iconic sculptures and stone models.

An Early Morning Visit to the Harbor Front

Make an early morning trip to the magnificent medieval castle that overlooks the harbor front and dominates the Paphos landscape. The architectural marvel sports several relics of the region’s struggle for independence and offers a stunning view of the bustling harbor and promenade. Take a walk through the fortifications for a first hand account of Paphos’ historical memoirs. The best time to visit is during sunrise when the flaming tangerine castle walls cast their glow in the turquoise waters.

Watch a Musical at Odeon Theatre

This is touted to be one of the most celebrated Greek amphitheaters on earth and has been in existence since the 2 nd century AD. The remarkably well-preserved destination still stages several music concerts, performing arts events and theatrical productions.   

Visit Baths of Aphrodite

A glimpse of Paphos’ illustrious history is not culminated till visitors make a trip to the legendary Baths of Aphrodite, a panoramic bath veiled mysteriously inside a cave near the coast of Akamas Peninsula. The historical attraction is located approximately 50 kilometers from the main Paphos city and features enjoyable walking trails and sun-smacked beaches en route to the baths.
