Explore Paphos like a local

Paphos is a highly popular summer destination, combining a rich history, a vibrant culture and superb natural environment that will satisfy a wide range of tastes. The well preserved historic monuments, the famous castle and the amazing beaches are just some of the reasons to visit this jewel in Cyprus’ crown – there are many things to do in Paphos.

Formerly the capital of Cyprus, Paphos was crowned winner of European Capital of Culture 2017 in recognition of its classical and mythological heritage spanning two millennia. The area features museums such as the Byzantine which houses a pristine collection of 7th to 18th century antiquities, the Archaeological Museum and the Fiti Village Weaving Museum, which showcases some striking colours and designs. What’s more, a wealth of ancient palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs from the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods are all yours to explore, with the UNESCO listed Paphos Archaeological Park standing out for its mosaics and monuments which are among the best preserved in the world.

Move forward to Medieval times and explore Paphos Castle, originally a Byzantine fort designed to protect Paphos harbour. This charming edifice has had many uses over the centuries, serving as a fortress, a prison and even a salt warehouse when the Brits occupied the island. Nowadays the site provides the perfect backdrop to the annual open-air cultural festival every September. A stone’s throw away the delightful harbour lies at the end of the promenade next to the imposing Medieval Fort. This location is a must-see for fans of seafood restaurants, which provide an authentic marine experience. These are among these best places to visit in Paphos.
