Paphos Holidays Overview


Any trip to a city which is considered to be the birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite is bound to be full of adventure, mythological wonders and architectural beauties. Paphos has known to be an ideal destination for families because of its cultural wealth, rich history, archaeological attractions that date back to the 12th century AD and ruins which date back to the 4th century BC.

Tourists are not only enchanted by the magnificent folklore, wonders of the Byzantine empire, rich history and archaeological sites, but are also offered with an excellent cosmopolitan lifestyle, world class museums, an exotic nightlife and delicious cuisines.

Any trip to the city can never be complete without visiting its UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Kato Phaphos Archaeological Park and the Tombs of the Kings or checking out the revered Aphrodite’s Rock, considered to be the birthplace of goddess Aphrodite. However, that’s not all that one can expect while on a holiday in Paphos. Places like the Coral Bay Beach ensure that there’s plenty of sun and sand, excellent swimming opportunities and a variety of water sport adventures to choose from as well.

What’s more, Paphos also offers its visitors with excellent hiking and cycling trails in the surrounding countryside, a picturesque harbour, a medieval era castle and excellent golf courses. To complete the perfect Paphos holiday, a trip to the various shopping avenues located in Upper Town is a must.

Paphos holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Tombs of the Kings

What is it? There are actually no kings buried here. Rather the site known as the Tombs of the Kings, one mile (two km) northwest of Paphos harbour towards Coral Bay, was the final resting place of about 100 Ptolemaic aristocrats who lived and died in the city between 3 BC and 3 AD. The tombs are impressive, carved out of solid rock, some featuring Doric pillars and frescoed walls. Archaeological excavations are ongoing at the site, which also features a church known as Paleoekklisia, which sports traces of Byzantine frescoes. Hours of Operation: Daily 8am to 5pm (November to March), 8am to 6pm (April to May and September to October), 8am to 7.30pm (June to August) Phone:(26) 306 295

 

 

2. The Mosaics of Paphos
Kyriakou Nikolaou Street
What is it? The striking mosaic floors in a series of ancient Roman noblemen's villas, dating from the third to fifth century AD, are a must-see for visitors to Paphos. The site where the villas are still being excavated can be found about 300 metres from the Paphos harbour. The mosaics featuring mythological scenes are visible in the houses of Dionysus, Orpheus and Aion, and the Villa of Theseus. All were made of small cubes of marble and stone, called tesserae, with glass paste added to widen the range of colour. In the House of Dionysus, for example, 5,985 square feet (556 sq metres) of floor space in 14 rooms are covered with the gorgeous mosaics. Hours of Operation: Daily 8am to 5pm (September to May), 8am to 7.30pm (June to August) Phone:(26) 306 217

 

 

3. Catacombs
Agio Pavlou Street
What is it? A large pistachio tree marks the entrance to the underground catacombs of Agia Solomoni in Kato Paphos. The tree is a strange sight, festooned as it usually is with pieces of cloth tied onto it by the faithful as offerings, in the hope that this sacred tree will cure various ailments. The catacombs themselves were carved into Fabrica hill, below the ancient Roman city wall, in the 4th century BC, and later became chapels for the early Christians. The underground chapels feature some interesting frescoes and graffiti left by 13th-century Crusaders, and there are numerous legends and stories attached to the patron saint Ayia Solomoni. Visitors are advised to take a torch along to explore the catacombs. Hours of Operation: Phone:
