Holidays in Cyprus Where to Visit in Paphos

Paphos has become one of the most exclusive and desirable locations in Cyprus. Chosen because of its southwest location, you'll enjoy lovely sunsets over the pristine blue sea. What makes Paphos so charming is that it's a mix of old and new.

You'll find many archeological sites and large stretches of unspoiled land, mainly in the Akamas Peninsula and Forest areas and a bustling town with all modern conveniences.Paphos' great location and beautiful scenery has made Paphos a popular holiday spot for many Europeans, especially the United Kingdom. Many have chosen to buy their own villa in Paphos and rent it out to friends in the UK. Holiday guests can rent a lovely holiday villa or apartment in Paphos Town or surrounding villages.

One of the most popular is Peyia village. Peyia is located just above the Coral Bay area on the mountain side. From there you can enter the famous Akamas Peninsula for some off road fun. I do highly recommend four wheel drive, as the roads can get bumpy and saloon type cars won't take the damage.Below is a list of the best places to visit while holidaying in Paphos. Remember to bring food and water if you happen to go to the Akamas, or the forest areas.

Where to Visit in Paphos:.The Mosaics of the House of Dionysos: The Mosaics are located in the Kato Paphos area near Paphos castle and Harbour area. Originally a 3rd Century Villa, the mosaics were discovered in 1962 and named after the God of Wine Dionysos' which is depicted in one of the mosaics.

Paphos Harbour Castle: The Castle or Fort was built by the Turks in 1592 on the ruins of a medieval castle. The rooms were once used as a dungeon and are now used occasionally as an exhibition area.Tombs of the Kings: Impressively built tombs dating back to the 3rd century B.C. for early Christians, didn't actually belong to Kings but is still a great site to see.Coral Bay and Sea Caves: Located 10km out of Paphos town is one of the most exclusive areas in Cyprus.

Ride along the coastal road to see the sea caves on the shore.Bird Park of Paphos: This newly built family entertainment area has a rare collection of birds and other animals in a lovely well thought grounds, an architectural master piece with the best views on the island. It's a shame it went to the birds.Snake George: If you plan on taking any nature walks in the Akamas peninsula, we suggest you visit George in Peyia first. He'll instruct you on which snakes are poisonous and what to do in case of an emergency. He's located on the Coral Bay main road just next to the petrol station.

Petra Tou Romiou: Legendary birth place of Aphrodite. The Goddess of Love and Beauty was said to have arisen from the foam at this famous rock location. You'll find them on the coastal road going towards Limassol from Paphos. Take the motorway and exit at Aphrodite Hills or take the old coastal road which originates in town (Yeroskipou).Kouklia Village: Palea Paphos was once known as the original Paphos.

You'll find ruins of a huge temple where Aphrodite was worshipped some 3000 years ago. You'll also find a museum containing some impressive archaeological finds of the area.The Bath of Aphrodite: Located in Polis area of Paphos is the fabled baths of the Goddess of Love. You'll find some lovely nature trails and can walk toward the Fontana Amoroza area. The actual Fontana is accessible only by jeep safari or 4x4.

We suggest you don't venture in without a guide because the roads are narrow and the cliff is steep toward the sea.The Monastery of Panayia Chrysoroyiatissa: Located in Panayia village which is 2700 feet above sea level. It's famous for its excellent wine. It was originally built by a monk who found an old icon of the Virgin Mary.

He claimed she appeared to him one evening and told him to build a monastery in her name. As the story goes, the icon he found was said to be painted by St. Luke.

This monastery was also attended by the late president of Cyprus Archbishop Makarios.The Church of Ayia Paraskevi: located in Yeroskipou, this five domed church is one of the oldest Byzantine churches in Cyprus. It's decorated in fine frescoes dating back to the 11th century. Famous for it's icon with two faces: on the one face is the Madonna and Child and on the other the crucifixion.Ayios Neophytos Monastery: Located near the famous Leptos Kamares village.

This Monastery was carved on the mountain side by a hermit monk called Neophytos. The interior of the church has three vaulted naves divided by columns and decorated in fine frescoes with a blue background.
