Situated on the South West Coast of Cyprus, Paphos holds great appeal to visitors of all ages. Steeped in history, with a wealth of ancient sites, some dating back to 4th Century BC. The Island’s capital in Roman times, and the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, Paphos retains its charm despite it’s popularity as a tourist resort. The main tourist area, and many archaeological sites, is to be found in Kato, or lower Paphos, whilst the old town known as Ktima sits further inland, high up on a rocky plateau. The surrounding area is countryside, rich in vegetation with banana plantations, citrus groves and vineyards which lead inland to the gentle foothills of the Western Troodos Mountains. Paphos is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
