Paphos


Nestling on the south-western tip of the island and founded in the 4th century BC, Paphos is probably Cyprus' most charming coastal town. Paphos is the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

It was founded by King Kinyras in 1400 BC. The port of Paphos was built by Nicocles, the last king of Paphos, at the time of Alexander the Great. It became the capital of the island replacing Salamis during the Hellenistic Period as its masters, the Ptolemies, favoured a location closer to their capital, Alexandria.

Paphos is the choice destination for visitors who wish to combine unique sightseeing tours with the pleasures of water sports, golf, bowling, tennis, shopping, excellent local and international cuisine and entertainment.

Kato Paphos (Lower Paphos) offers a wealth of restaurants, cafes and shops. Why not relax in one of the superb fish taverns at Paphos harbor and watch the local fisherman bring in their daily catch?

Pano Paphos (upper Paphos) is the old town that oozes charm, a combination of old and new. Modern shopping centers can also be found offering fashion for everyone, at all price ranges!
