Pafos


As the capital of Cyprus for 600 years in antiquity, the archaeological legacy of Pafos (Paphos) is such that UNESCO put the whole city on its World Cultural Heritage List.

Admire the intricate floor mosaics in villas dating back to the Roman period depicting scenes from Greek mythology, considered among the finest in the Eastern Mediterranean. Equally impressive are the underground Tombs of the Kings carved out of solid rock and decorated with Doric pillars. Or visit St. Paul’s Pillar where legend has it the Apostle was flogged before converting the Roman governor, Sergius Paulus, to Christianity, and making Cyprus the first country in the world to be governed by a Christian.

A wide selection of accommodation is on offer in the city, ranging from luxury beachside hotels with every amenity, such as health spas, conference centres, fresh and salt-water pools and exotic gardens, to a variety of hotel apartments for the budget-conscious.

Relish mouthwatering delicacies at the numerous restaurants serving both local and international cuisine and offering exceptional value. Enjoy classical opera under the stars in the romantic setting of the medieval castle overlooking Pafos harbour during the various summer festivals. Or jive to the latest dance tunes at a plethora of entertainment spots, part of the modern town’s varied nightlife. Pafos won’t disappoint you.
