Impressive open-air museum
Those who love antiquities will feel right at home in Paphos. The region has a gorgeous coastline and when you head inland, you’ll encounter beautiful old monasteries and charming villages. Here you’ll find locals who still maintain the old traditions and ways of life. You’ll also see a medieval fort, the archaeological park Kato Paphos, the small Odeon amphitheatre and the mosaics in the Roman villas known as the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion and Orpheus. Don’t miss your chance to explore the Tombs of the Kings, one of the most important attractions in Paphos – and in all of Cyprus, really. It boasts impressive architectural feats and the funerary chambers of wealthy, influential people from the Egyptian and Roman eras. In short: Paphos itself is one big open-air museum.
