The lively town of Paphos, the birthplace of Aphrodite, is nestled between the Cypriot coast and the Troodos Mountains. Take a journey through time, exploring fourth century tombs, the Paphos Fort and ruins of Roman villas ornately decorated with mosaics. With the Agios Neophytos Monastery only a short hop away, just outside the traditional village of Tala, Paphos is fantastic for those looking to discover the ancient heart of Cyprus. With a buzzing restaurant and bar scene, Paphos offers plenty for night owls too.
For hotels, the chic Almyra, sister to the better known Anassa, is our pick of the bunch.
